      Running Windows Pro x64, Currently Semi-Annual Channel, have Feature Update set to 365 days, Quality Updates 0 days, use Group Policy set at 2 (ask before download).

      Was going to Feature update from 1803 to 1903, but now not so sure.

      Based on my Advanced settings and today’s date, what is the deferral days number to use to get Windows Updater to offer me 1809 vs 1903?

      FMI, in case 1903 was offered instead of 1809 (and asked to download per my Group Policy setting), can I just hide it with wushowhide and try again?  Or will I be stuck with downloading and installing 1903?

      According to my count, and I could be off by a day or two, 145/200 for 1903/1809.

        PK thanks.  How critical is a day or two?  Could I end up with 1903?

          You are deferring for the number of days since 1903 was declared.
          Anything bigger than the length of time for 1903 should get you 1809 – like 160, 175, 180, etc.

            So to clarify for me, the Feature days deferred has nothing to do with my current ver 1803 dates, the deferral days are deferring all subsequent versions from their availability date – correct?

            eg: Windows 10 ver 1903 was available 5/21/2019 – 147 days ago (including today according to time and date.com calculator).  So any number less than 147 gives me ver 1903, and any number more than 147 gives me ver 1809 – correct? (even tho ver 1809 has also technically been deferred for 147 days and more).

            If above is correct, when ver 1909 is released, a number smaller than the number when 1903 was released from will give me ver 1909 – correct?
