Ways You Can Disable Windows 10 Updates From Automatically Updating by Omokowa(m): 10:49pm On Apr 13, 2018
Are you confused of what to do when windows 10 updates continuously? You will agree with me that the older version of windows shares how to undo automatic updates, but windows 10 has come up with more complications that varies. And as such many have wondered how its updates can be disabled.

You can check for new updates in settings, though windows 10 don’t give options to review updates and also not to uninstall unlike previous version. Instead, the Microsoft has chosen to install at their own scheduled time. Not to worry though, as this piece will guide you on how to disable that feature and make things clear for you.

We have search for user’s most pressing questions on the use of windows 10 such as:

Whether you have to accept all updates
Whether you can uninstall existing updates
How to reduce the band width some updates use and
How to stop all updates.
Windows 10 updates and how to defer them

When it all seemed Microsoft has taken over updates from their products, there are still some options you can make do with in differing updates.

Click the start button and select settings

Select updates and security and then

Windows update

That brings up the Windows Update screen, which shows any updates that have been downloaded, as well as any that are waiting to be downloaded.

If you want to check to see if any updates have become available since the last time Windows checked for them, click “Check for updates.” Next to any update that has been downloaded but not yet installed, you’ll see the words, “Status: Awaiting Install.”

Windows 10 automatically downloads update to your pc without installing them and also shows those pending downloads.

On the windows update screen, click

Change active hours

Select hours you typically use your computer/pc

Updates won’t install during those hours.

NB: active hours can’t exceed 18 hours

You can control when Windows installs updates by choosing “active hours,” during which installations shouldn’t take place.

Your system may or may not need to restart in order to install the updates. Typically, updates that add virus definitions for Windows Defender don’t need the system to restart, while other updates do. Your PC will only restart to finish installing the updates during non-active hours. And you even have a bit of control over that. If, for some reason, you want the downloaded update to immediately install, on the Windows Update screen click “Restart now.” And if you want to have your PC restart at a specific time, click “Restart options,” and select the day and time you want your PC to restart.

You can also ask Windows Update to install not just updates to Windows 10, but also for other Microsoft products, such as Microsoft Office. To do that, on the Windows Update screen, click Advanced Options, and on the “Choose how updates are installed section” on the screen that appears, click “Give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update Windows.”

There is a workaround to the must-always-update-immediately rule — assuming you have Windows Professional, Enterprise or Education. In those cases, you have some control over pausing updates. To do it, click the

Start button and select


Update & Security

Advanced options,

Then go to the box “Choose when updates are installed.” This setting will control whether to defer the twice-yearly upgrade to Windows 10, and how to do it. You have two choices:
