Microsoft Soon to Allow Users to Set Download Speeds for Updates

Although we are months away from next year’s major Windows 10 update, more details are coming out on what the company might be bringing with the update. Thanks to Albacore, we now know that the upcoming update will give users an option to set download speeds for windows updates.

However, ‏you should note that the feature is hidden at the moment and Microsoft hasn’t noted anything about it in the release notes for the preview build 18912. In the image shared by Albacore, we can see that the feature follows on the update controls which were part of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. In case you want to limit the speed, you will need to go to the advanced options to set a bandwidth based on a percentage of total bandwidth. As for the new option, it allows users to select the exact speed of a download for both background and foreground.

Apart from this, the upcoming update will also contain a number of bug fixes such as green-screen issues and win32k.sys error reports.
