    Is it possible to turn off automatic updates for windows 10?


    Hello,

    Is it possible to turn off automatic updates for windows 10?

    I check for updates often and would rather manually install them instead of finding out after the fact that updates we made.

    Thanks in advance.

    You need to edit your network connection properties and set it to be 'metered' so it doesn't auto-download them.
