    Microsoft Now Allows Windows 10 Home Users to Disable Auto App Updates


    Windows 10 Home users are not allowed to defer system updates, and as we’ve recently found out, they weren't even allowed to disable app updates in the Windows Store, so all new versions that were released through the store were automatically installed on their PCs.

    Today, however, Microsoft has rolled out an update for the Windows Store, and as part of this release, the company has also introduced an option to disable automatic app updates.

    In other words, if you don't want new versions of your apps to be automatically installed on your PC, just fire up the Windows Store, go to Settings and disable this new option. After that, the Windows Store will let you know that updates are available, but you'll have to manually install them on the computer.

    I've seen several people report that, that doesn't work anymore? I haven't confirmed it myself though.

    I can because it hasn't messed around with my AMD graphics card(CCC) since.

    Ok, not sure why others say it doesn't work then? Something they are doing or not doing? It may depend on when you set that option too. Anyway if you say it works, that's good enough for me.

    I'll second that, but with my Nvidia graphics driver. I prefer to install the updates myself, so I can uncheck some of the options I don't need.

    I am glad that MS has realised that they aren't big daddy.
    I like my updates when I want them NOT when MS says I need them
    or, having drivers installed that are not as new as other ones.
