5 Ways to Disable Automatic Windows 10 Updates
By Vamsi Krishna for MakeTechEasier
There are a lot of changes in Windows 10, and automatic updates is one of them. Along with the automatic updates, Windows 10 is also pre-configured to use your bandwidth to deliver updates, but you can easily disable it. When it comes to automatic updates, there is no straightforward way to configure or disable them.
If you ever want to, here are different ways to disable automatic Windows 10 updates.
Enable Scheduled Restart
Windows 10 automatically restarts whenever it finishes downloading or installing the updates. If you don’t like this behavior, you can configure Windows 10 to restart at a scheduled time.
Notify to Download Updates
Other than scheduling a restart after downloading or installing the updates, you can force Windows to notify you before downloading the updates.
Hide Unwanted Updates
If you find any updates that are conflicting with your Windows 10 system, you can easily hide them using the Show or Hide updates troubleshooter app provided by Microsoft.
Disable Automatic Updates By Enabling Metered Connection
Note: disabling the updates is never encouraged; only follow the below tips if you know what you are doing.
If you want to disable the Windows 10 updates completely, you can certainly do so.
One way is to set your Internet connection type to “Metered.” When on metered connections, Windows won’t download the updates.
Disable Updates By Disabling Services
Another way to disable the Windows 10 updates is to simply stop the Windows Updates service from running altogether.
