How to Disable Update Notifications on Windows 11 22H2?

Posted by

When cumulative updates and feature updates are available, Windows 11 displays mainly two types of notifications:-

  • The first one notifies you when an update is ready for installation.
  • The other informs you that you must restart your computer for the installation to be completed.

This gearupwindows article will help you eliminate such notifications if you don’t want them.

The Windows 11 system now includes a setting that allows you to suppress all notifications related to Windows Updates (cumulative updates and feature updates) since these notifications can distract you from your work. System administrators can use the setting to remove distractions from students or employees, but anyone can use Group Policy or Registry Editor to do so.
