Webclient Timeout?

I am using the webclient (system.net) to download a file. I haven't found a
"timeout" interval setting so I'm guessing there must be some other way to
limit it. Is there anyway to limit the amount of time spent attempting to
get the file? Any examples on the internet someplace?

System.Net.Http WebRequest has a Timeout property.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows.

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
