    I don't think you can while on the TP

    I am sure I read that updates are compulsory so you cannot change the options

    During the Technical Preview the Windows Update option cannot be turned off. See number 8 here 10 Things You Should Know Before Installing Windows 10 Technical Preview

    The registry hack in the article I linked to appears to work. At least, the drop down menu is available.

    Before you install Windows Technical Preview - Microsoft Windows
    Sure you can. Since I want to know what is being updated instead of letting Windows silently installs it.

      • Windows Update will be set to automatically install important updates as they become available. You wonít be able to turn off automatic updates in Windows Technical Preview.

    Is it now not possible to change the settings?
    I have tried both methods mentioned in the above linked article but still no drop down menu in the Windows Updates section even though the settings in both areas show that the option to change the settings (option 5) are set.
