    So to disable the Windows Update service with Command Prompt, I should run the following commands:

    Code:
    net stop wuauserv
    sc config "wuauserv" start=disabled
    While, to enable its:

    Code:
    sc config "wuauserv" start=auto
    Right?

    Thanks

    Bye

    As a Home Edition user, I advise you not to disable the Windows Update service but to disable the auto-update function by setting all connections as metered.

    Thank you for your thoughts

    I guess part of my question was to understand (for my own edification) if that works in Windows Home edition. I wasn't necessarily going to completely disable.

    Working in IT all of these years, I want to decide what updates are installed and when. I have the Pro version on mine and that allows me to have much more control and was unaware that I could completely disable updates or disable the auto updates In the Home version

    The above commands completely disable the Windows Update service in my Home Edition.

    After running the registry trick, is the update settings still supposed to say that updates will be downloaded and installed automatically?

    Hello besweeet,

    Yep, it'll still say that even though automatic updates has been disabled. It won't automatically download and install updates unless you manually check for updates.

    At my end, it won't automatically download and install updates even if I manually check for updates, because I use a metered connection.
