Control panel not updating settings
Turn off Automatic Updates: This option completely disables Windows Update in Windows XP.You won't even be told that updates are available.You can, of course, still visit the Windows Update website yourself and check for any new patches.While it is possible, at least prior to Windows 10, I do not recommend completely disabling Windows Update.But eventually they became integrated into the Windows experience, and many people embraced those.Given time, I’m sure the many will embrace the Settings app, too.While I haven’t used the Settings app on a touchscreen device, the UI design screams touch-functionality, delivering users an intuitive experience with clear options, less clutter, more relevant information in a universal package.It would seem the Control Panel is destined to become a mere legacy tool. Gabe Aul, Windows and Devices Group Vice President alluded to this in a recent Tweet: Windows 10 is designed to please literally everyone, and as such features like the Control Panel were always going to receive some Windows 10 treatment. Once the entire spectrum of Control Panel features and settings makes the transition to the Settings app, I think it could be an excellent feature that should encourage more regular users to interact with their system settings.
” So while users new to the Windows experience may rejoice in the new Settings panel, what of us older generations brought up with the Control Panel? The Settings menu is now a sleeker set of nine-menus, along with the vastly improved Find a Setting search feature in the top-right corner: in the functionality.
Should the Settings app take over, or should the Control Panel remain a legacy feature for those who want it?
If your original decision isn't working out, or you need to change how it works to avoid repeating an auto-update issue, like what happens on some Patch Tuesdays, you can simply adjust how Windows receives and installs updates.
I recommend checking this option so other Microsoft programs you have installed will get automatic updates, too, like Microsoft Office.
(Updates for your Windows Store apps are handled in the Store.
