Windows 10: Change settings to allow you to download updates at a later time? Solved

  1.    07 Aug 2015 #1

    Change settings to allow you to download updates at a later time?


    I use my laptop on the road a lot tethered to my phone for data. I only have so much data plan on mobile so I would like to make it just alert me up updates and allow me to chose when to install them like I could in Windows 8 on this machine. I don't see an option for that now and see where they say they are automatic now.

    Hello MNorby, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you like, one of the options below to disable automatic Windows Updates may be able to help.

    Ah, thank you. It appears according to that link that this isn't possible with Home Edition??

    EDIT: I see where I can set my hotspot connection as a metered connection and that should disable it. Thank you

    The first two options are not possible in the Windows 10 Home edition, but you could do option 3 or 4 if you like.

    another quick question. I set my hotspot connection as a metered connection in the admin account but when I go to my user account that metered connection is off. Should it showed it as on for the user even though it is a greyed out option?

    Sure thing.

    The main thing that counts is that it shows as metered in your settings. It may just not be showing in the standard user's account since it is grayed out with default settings and can't be changed by that user.
