I’m using Windows 7 and start getting annoyed by installing updates on shutdown because sometimes I need to shutdown it quickly but installing updates may take a long time. Don’t disable your automatic updates cause it’s really important to keep updating your Windows 7 from known bugs. But if sometimes you need to shutdown quickly without installing updates, you can do this:
- Log Off your computer instead off shutdown it.
- Press CTRL + ALT + DEL.
- On the bottom right side of the screen there is a shutdown icon. Click the arrow and choose shutdown.
- Your Windows 7 will be shutdown directly without installing updates.
