Can I stop my PC from upgrading to Windows 11?

Postby JJ4SDR » Wed Nov 10, 2021 11:25 pm

Is there a way to permanently prevent my PC from being updated to Windows 11? I am not ready for that right now! I paused all updates for 35 days but see that after the pause has been used up then my PC will update before I can pause future updates for another 35 days. Perhaps, this applies to general updates only rather than updating to Windows 11? My PC is compatible with Windows 11. I would imagine that I call the shots in terms of the O/S, not Microsoft. :shock:

Recommendations?

Unless your machine is not used for the internet, you should allow the updates to run. They patch security holes.

Major upgrades, major version are not done automatically. The automatic updates are just security patches or other bug fixes and you should keep any system that is connected to the internet at current patch level.

I understand, but I have also learnt that some updates cause problems when running our radios. for instance sound settings get changed.

By "major update" I presume you're talking Windows 11?

Thanks!
