We recommend using this workaround only when you really want to disable Windows 10 automatic updates.
But there is a workaround to turn off automatic updates in Windows 10.
Follow the steps below,1) Search for in Cortana/Search box and open it.2) Find Windows Update in the services list.3) Double click Windows Update services.
If your connection offers unlimited downloads at a specific time — for example, during the middle of the night — you could mark the connection as unmetered occasionally at these times to download updates and mark it as metered after the updates are downloaded. This option only affects the Wi-Fi network you’re currently editing, but Windows will remember this setting for each individual Wi-Fi network on which you change it.
(If you haven’t gotten the Anniversary Update yet, this option will be in Settings Advanced Options.) This option isn’t available for Ethernet networks, but you can set your Ethernet connection as metered using a registry hack.
In Windows 8.1 and before, Microsoft allowed users to turn off auto updates completely.
Unfortunately in Windows 10, Microsoft does not offer any option for general consumers to turn off automatic updates.
You can click the Download button to download and install updates at your leisure.
So maybe you don’t mind the automatic downloads, but you just don’t want Windows to restart while you’re in the middle of something.
Click or tap “Change Active Hours” under Update Settings.
