Unless its a portable version.
I think I saw a ticket being worked on to delay installs from downloaded installed versions yesterday.

By now, the option is yes or no to download and install. You can not download and not instal.
If you download you have to install it.

For the most part correct. Updates are detected automatically rather than
applied then it's users choice as to whether an update is
downloaded/installed or not.

Hi all,

Out of curiosity, how do the automatic NVDA updates work? I assume it checks
the update server and then downloads the new installer and automatically
runs it to update NVDA files. Is the installer saved somewhere like the temp
folder? Is it deleted automatically once the update is complete? If this is
all correct, great! If not, please correct me.
