  • Win10 beta build 15048: Have you seen this disappearing Pause Update panel?

    There are some tiny changes in build 15048, released Friday afternoon, compared to build 15046. Clearly we’re nearing the final stage of Windows 10 Creators Update.

    But @abbodi86 discovered something disconcerting. At least, it’s disconcerting to me.

    In preview build 15046, the Pause Updates setting was pegged at 35 days. I talked about that in InfoWorld last week.

    In preview build 15048, as you can see in this screenshot, Pause Updates only lasts for 7 days.

    Further adding to the mystery, the two Group Policy settings (refer to the InfoWorld article) haven’t changed at all. Feature Updates pause stays at 60 days. Quality Updates pause is still at 35 days. And the Defer Quality Updates up-down control still maxes out at 30 days.

    What will the final, shipping version of the Creators Update say? For that matter, will this hidden Settings pane exist in the final version? Who knows…
