Changes to monthly Windows update notifications

Security updates are deployed to Drexel-managed PCs each month. If a restart is required, your device will attempt to automatically restart outside of normal business hours.

Starting March 6, 2023, you’ll receive a notification from Software Center when your device requires a restart to complete updates.

Software Center notification to restart your computer or snooze the notification.

We’re making this change to improve patching compliance and to help keep your Windows device secure. You can choose to restart immediately, or you can snooze the notification and choose your own snooze interval. You’ll be notified again after the snooze period elapses.

Help and support

If you have questions or need help upgrading to Windows 10, version 22H2, contact your IT department or the Drexel IT Help Desk.
