How to Turn on “Get me up to date” in Windows 11

If you receive Windows 11 updates, Windows 11 will first download these updates and then install the updates outside of user hours.

The user hours on a Windows 11 PC are from 9:00 AM till 8:00 PM in the afternoon. The user hours might differ. In the meantime, Windows 11 creates a reminder to reboot your PC to complete the updates.

Enabling the “Get me up to date” option in the advanced Windows update settings ensures that updates are installed immediately after downloading. If updates are available, a notification is displayed 15 minutes before the reboot to restart the computer to complete updates.

So by enabling “Get me up to date” the computer is immediately provided with new updates, even during user working hours.
