Windows 10 Update Downloading Windows 11. Will it auotomatically install?

Windows 10 Update is downloading Windows 11. Will it automatically install? How do I stop it automatically installing before I can verify that everything on my machine is compatible with Windows 11?

I know I can limit updates using the Group Policy Editor but I want Windows 10 to update for the moment. Surely such a major upgrade should need confirmation to install?

Hello CWL,

No, Windows 11 will not automatically be installed or downloaded in your system. The way it is make available at the moment is through Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and click Check for Updates. If available, you'll see "Feature update to Windows 11. Click Download and install." It will only download and install IF YOU click there.

Hi,
Thanks for the reply. I didn't get this screen. Just a message saying it was downloading Windows 11 which I paused until I could check it won't automatically install. I'm just wondering why it is downloading before asking?
