You can delay the Windows 10 Anniversary Update from installing on your PC to avoid possible issues or for any other reason, and here we show you how.

The Windows 10 Anniversary Update is officially released, and now millions of users around the world are busy installing the new update. However, it's been noted that not everyone is getting a smooth installation to the new version of the operating system.
You probably came across our extensive Windows 10 Anniversary Update guide highlighting a number of problems that users have been reporting during the installation, some of which include:

  • Cortana disappearing from the taskbar after the update without a way to turn it back on.
  • Some settings not migrating after installing the Anniversary Update.
  • Some Windows Store apps crashing immediately after launching them.
  • Windows 10 Anniversary Update failing to install with error messages, such as 0x80070057, 0x800705b4, 0x8024200D, and many others.
