    Can I change Windows Update settings in Win10?


    I'm asking out of curiosity more then anything, since Windows Update has a heading saying "Some settings are managed by your system administrator". I'm just curious if someone's already found a way around that, lol, or if it's somehow hardcoded in the Tech Preview.

    Well, you can search "Windows Update" in the Start Menu. Click the result so the usual Windows Update app pops up. From there, you can setup the settings. You can also access WinUpdate from the Control Panel too.

    It doesn't let me change the Update preferences/disable Windows Update.

    I haven't noticed that until just now. It's either a bug or there's a way to run Windows Update as admin.

    No, MS said regarding the preview that they locked modifying Windows Update settings, to ensure that the Tech Preview users get updates.

    So I'm asking if there's a way to modify that lock . Is this the first time MS locked changing Update settings in a preview?
