    Ways to disable Windows 10 updates


    The symptoms are getting worse... My laptop restarts for updates every 2-3 days now, during "active hours" and without notice. There seems to be no willingness from Microsoft to address this in the future. I have lost so much work and productivity already that the time has come for more drastic measures. I would like to disable automatic updates. I'm willing to take my chances against hackers and virtual terrorists; I'd rather have my computer participate in a clandestine bitcoin farming operation than to receive near-daily updates and associated reboots.


    Setting my network as a metered connection interferes with my cloud synchronisation clients, so I'd prefer a more surgical approach, like altering registry keys or services. Could anyone point me to some reliable resources for disabling automatic updates? Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.

    :)

    Windows 10 update being enabled.

    Late to the party again... *Laugh :laugh:
    That would be incorrect. To disable updates, the service must be disabled. Windows Defender has a nasty habit of undoing users configs like that so you need to disable it first, then disable the update service.

    If you're looking for an easy way to do this, see here;
    Ultimate Windows Tweaker 4 for Windows 10
    There are all sorts of great config changes that can be made safely with that utility and all with just a couple of clicks. After setting changes a reboot will b e required, but that's to be expected.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
