Microsoft Patch Tuesday is an unofficial term for the day when Microsoft rolls out updates to its products including Windows and Office. It’s a schedule that Microsoft has been following since 2003 like clockwork. Like any other software, Windows exposes its own set of vulnerabilities, and Microsoft rolls out fixes for them, every Tuesday.

Starting with Windows 10, Microsoft has made sure that it will force update any version of Windows 10 which is older than 18 months.
"Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master." - George Washington

“Remember democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet, that did not commit suicide.”   -John Adams

Unless you are using Windows 10 Enterprise or LTSB.   :005:

Or you just break update for that matter.  After all, it's Microsoft so breaking isn't the hard part of the equation.  :011:
