Once in a while, your PC may need to restart to finish installing an update. Did you know there’s a feature you can use to keep restarts from happening when you’re working?

It’s called active hours. Active hours are a time range you can set to let your PC know when you’re usually using your device, so it won’t restart automatically during those times.

Here’s how to set active hours on your PC:

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