    Disable automatic reboot for updates


    Windows 10 seems to like rebooting without my permission - such as when I have a fullscreen game open, and I also miss the notification to postpone. How do I disable this? I don't have windows pro and thus cant use gpedit. The registry keys various pages suggested editing don't seem to exist.

    I don't want to turn off windows update, I just want my laptop to never ever restart on its own, its a ridiculous "feature".

    Any help much appreciated

    Windows 7 (reverted back)

    It's alot easier than that

    Go to SETTINGS
    Updates and Security
    Updates
    Advanced options

    Choose how Updates are installed
    Notify to schedule restart

    Good Luck

    No, it isn't. The last few times the notification was missed, as i had something full screen, so windows scheduled it all by itself, and promptly restarted without telling me. I want to permanently disable windows' ability to restart by itself

    Mine is exactly the opposite. Its now got two cum updates scheduled, been running the whole time, no manual schedule set, and it won't force restart. I actually need for it to force restart because it's an unattended pc.
