    [Question] Windows Update on Windows 10


    Is there any way to selectively install the updates like we've been able to do in every previous windows version? The only choice I see is "Defer Updates" so I can choose when to install them, and of course the other setting that connects you to some kind of p2p pool, which I have shut off.

    I normally skip certain updates, especially display driver updates, which I get from GeForce website. Is there any way to do this in Windows 10? Thanks.

    Block Driver Updates


    Short answer is no (Automatic Mandatory Updates) unless you are using Enterprise.

    There is a way to block driver updates.
    Some one posted screenshots, but I can't find the post/thread at the moment.

    Well I don't want other drivers to be blocked, just the Display Driver updates, cos they are almost always the wrong driver.

    So Enterprise edition allows choosing individual updates? I'll have to find a copy of that somewhere.

    I'm not sure how much choice you get with Enterprise (I'm using Pro).

    However if businesses were forced to accept every update (when MS decided to push it out) they'd just skip W10.
