Setting Windows active hours – so your computer doesn’t reboot while you are working (or gaming)

Windows updates can be annoying if they try to reboot your computer in the middle of work or gaming.  Take a minuet to set the active hours for your computer so that updates happen at an appropriate time.

How to set up active hours:

  • Select the Start button
  • Select Settings (or use Windows key + I)
  • Update & security
  • Select “Change active hours.”


Choose the start time and end time, then click Save.
