    Didn't you read the EULA, paragraph 28, sub-section 17: "We can do anything we want to our OS, that you're renting, and there's not a damn thing you can do about it"

    The answer may be in the EULA/End User License Agreement and the part about only having a license for the use of Windows.

    Microsoft makes changes with every Cumulative update they put out, it`s nothing new.

    You can start using Windows Automatic Update Manager and take control of your PC

    Enable or Disable Windows Update Automatic Updates in Windows 10 | Tutorials (tenforums.com)
