i am currently on windows 10 pro build 1809. in my windows updates it says that there is 1903 available and under it there is a download and install link. as i know the end of life of build 1809 is may 2020. when a build is nearing end of life you will get pop up notifications warning you about that and if you keep on ignoring them then your windows will get disabled with a full screen notification forcing you to restart to do the build upgrade. i have some questions about the process:-
- how much more time do i have until the pop up notifications telling me that my build is nearing end of life start to show? my guess is there are 4 months left and i have until new year
- what exactly will happen to me?
a) everything will be hidden and it will download the build upgrade on its own to do the build upgrade and i wont get any warning and restart on its own and i wont get any warning
b) it will download the build upgrade on its own and pop up notifications telling me that i need to restart will start to show
c) i will get warning that my build is nearing end of life but nothing is downloaded and then it will download the build upgrade on its own and pop up notifications telling me that i need to restart will start to show
- what are all the windows services which are responsible for the pop up notifications and for the fullscreen notification? is it the windows updates service on its own? or the windows updates service and windows updates medic service? or there are more services involved and if yes then what are all of those services?
