You will be able to install the next big Windows 10 Update in under 30 minutes

Since the release of Windows 10, Microsoft has been working hard to reduce the PC downtime during the Windows update. Usually, Windows take around 1-2 hrs for the update to complete which can be frustrating if you need your PC or laptop urgently.

However, this is set to change as Head of Windows Insider Program, Dona Sarkar today confirmed that they have successfully managed to reduce the downtime to 30 minutes. This is a huge improvement over the old update times.

The new change is further explained by Joseph Conway, Senior Program Manager on the Windows Fundamentals team in a blog post.

To achieve this, we moved portions of the work done during the offline phases and placed it in the online phase. Because of these changes, the average offline time for the Fall Creator’s Update released last October has dropped to 51 minutes, a 38% improvement! But we didn’t stop there. We’ve done additional work in the upcoming Windows release to move portions of migration operations to the online phase as well. This has resulted in an overall reduction of offline time when installing builds in the Insiders Program to an average of 30 minutes. That’s a reduction of 63% from the Creators Update!

According to the post, Windows team successfully managed to reduce the average offline time from 82 minutes to 30 minutes. Unfortunately though, this change is just for Windows Insiders and Microsoft is expected to roll out these changes with the next major Windows 10 update.
