Sometimes your PC may need to restart to finish installing an update. Maybe you’re in the middle of something and don’t want to be interrupted when you get that notification. Happily, there’s a feature called “active hours” you can use to keep restarts from happening when you’re working.

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.
