Easiest Way to Disable Auto-Update on Windows 10

Windows 10 is the latest computer OS from Microsoft. There is more computer running on Windows than any other computer OS. This is a huge factor, and the main reason behind this is the affordability and the ability to play around with the Windows 10. Every OS requires updates to keep yourself and your computer free from attack and other stuff. This is an essential part of computer OS, but most of us hate Windows update.

The main reason behind this is the limited data we have. If we have an unlimited connection, then we should let Microsoft install update on our computer. Another big problem of Windows 10 is it gets restart any time to install updates. It doesn’t care if you are doing any important work anything else it just reboots the PC without even asking you. You might tend to lose your important task in between.


I would never suggest anyone to completely disable Windows update as your computer might land in risk. Instead, you can just select other settings like “Download Update and let me choose whether to Install,” “Check for Update but let me choose whether to install updates.” But if you seriously want to disable updates then you have to think twice.

There might be many reasons why you want to disable your Windows Update, and I am no one to stop you. Here is the guide where I will show you how you can disable Windows 10 update easily.
