        My system is W10 Home; version 1903.

        In my  “Update & Security” setup , I have update paused. But it will resume on 11/20/20.  I cannot click “Pause For 7 Days” to add more days.
        In my  Advance Options,  the last date in “Pause Until” is Nov 11, 2020 and won’t go beyond that.

        The next Windows Updates will be on be on 11/10/2020 (Tue) . Will my system be forced to pick up the new updates between 11/10  and 11/11.  (I don’t want that!!) How can I prevent that happens.

        Read through this thread – there is a way to cheat pause.

        You can use Metered connections to keep the updates from downloading.
        Settings App\Network\Status

        You can use wushowhide.diagcab to hide updates you don not want.
