    So the "PC" window** has this "Update" point. It's from Windows 10, 1:1.

    How do I set up my update preferences?
    This should be a server, after all.
    I like the new features and all, but having my server restart itself without my consent is very frustrating...

    ** This new horrendous "Control Panel v2" thing.

    Sorry Tito my question might have been a bit confusing.
    I am fine with the cumulative updates / "all at once" method.

    But I want to set up WHEN to download them, and WHEN to restart.
    Currently there is this "Active Hours" thing, I mean, it's the Windows 10 Update 1-1 copied.

    How do I make it NOT update? Or update WHEN I want?
    Thank you!
