Here’s what’s new with Microsoft, Green Screen of Death and more…

To begin with with, everybody remembers the BSOD errors during a software crash. In the new Windows build, you would now see a “Green Screen of Death”. It has been speculated that it will make it easier for Microsoft developers to distinguish when the operating system crashes on a stable version versus a beta.

There are also leaked Screenshots that show Microsoft adding a Windows 10 Update pausing option.

Microsoft might be adding the ability to pause updates, according to Sergey Tkachenko of Winaero. Based on the leaked screenshots, it seems like the updates could actually be delayed up to 35 days once the Windows 10 Creator Update is released. See image below for reference.

This option is very much appreciated by a lot of people since  there are instances that the updates causes problems for users. Often times Windows 10 updates automatically start at the worst times. One such example was when a meteorologist is doing a live weather report.

Windows update files vary in sizes and some are pretty huge. These large updates sometimes causes problems for people that have limited download limits from their ISPs every month.

This pausing feature may help in a way for those users with limited internet but this is not the most optimal solution, however will give them a way to adjust the way the update is downloaded which is within their control.

How will it work? You will be able to pause updates by going to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Advanced Options > Toggle Pause Updates to Off. The description of this feature says “You can temporarily pause updates from being installed for up to 35 days. Some updates, like Windows Defender definition updates, will continue to be installed.”
