    Update Downloads are killing my streaming TV performance.
    I can't use the metered network option as it will slow my TV streaming.
    How can I control when Update Downloads take place?

    Schedule Update Downloads

    Hi, which updates are causing difficulty?
    Windows updates- drivers and security updates?
    or
    Windows App updates?

    The first isn't so frequent, so I'm surprised this is noticeable.

    What Microsoft has allowed is that users of the home edition can disable the automatic update of Apps through the Windows Store.

    If you have the Home edition, you cannot defer Windows Updates.

    Note that app updates are controlled by a scheduled task, so you could amend its parameters so the updates are done at a time suitable for you.

    If you wished, you could in principle create a task to disable and enable the windows update service, so that updates were not delivered at inconvenient times.

    For reference:
    Store Update Apps Automatically - Turn On or Off in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
    Windows Update Automatic Updates - Enable or Disable in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
    Windows Update - Defer Upgrades in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    You may find more of interest in the Tutorials section.

    Note: The group policy editor is only available in the Pro edition. However, a quick search will show you a way to enable this (supposedly) in the Home edition.
