    Windows Update

    Not sure if this tip has been addressed before concerning Windows Updating and stopping unwanted drivers.
    To stop driver updating open File Explorer, right click on This PC, Properties, Advanced System Settings, Hardware Tab.
    Device installation Settings, choose the No button and save changes.

    I hope everyone agrees with this, we should get more control over the updates in Windows 10.
    No size, no download option, seriously this is one place where Microsoft needs to work more.

    Unfortunately that does not work, MS Tool has to be used to actually stop it. Like:
