On Windows 8 and 8.1, there’s a much longer grace period — you see a “you recently updated, so you need to reboot your PC” message, but your computer will wait three entire days before rebooting on its own.
You’ll have plenty of time to restart on your own terms without losing your work.
The new update rolling out is part of the Redstone 2 update and brings some small features, improvements, and fixes.
The Windows Store is a great way to get apps, music, movies, and now e Books in Windows 10 Creators Update.
However, you might run into a situation where the Store isn’t working correctly.
One of the main issues users are complaining about is that sometimes apps won’t update or they won’t download at all.
Here’s a look at how to clear the cache and reset the Windows 10 Store with a built-in utility.
That’s right: You don’t have to click a button every four hours to postpone the reboot.
You can actually use your computer without being harassed!
If you run into a situation where an app installation hangs or fails to update, resetting the Windows Store’s cache is one of the first troubleshooting steps to take, and it often resolves the issue. Or, launch the Command Prompt as Administrator and run the command. You won’t see anything happening, just wait a few seconds and it will disappear and the Store will relaunch.
Note that this will work in both Windows 10 Anniversary Update (Version 1607) and Windows 10 Creators Update (Version 1703). Go back in and try to update or download the app(s) that were failing and they should update successfully.
Just selecting “manually install updates” and installing updates when you remember to do so isn’t really good enough.
You want Windows Update to install those updates for you automatically.
Important: Before proceeding with this guide, you should know that modifying the registry is risky, and it can cause irreversible damage to your installation if you don't do it correctly.
