    Option to stop automatic driver updates is GONE in TH2???


    So on RTM build, you used to have these options:




    But now, in TH2, you only have this:

    Is anyone else annoyed that Microsoft seems to be PURPOSELY REMOVING more and more of users' choice...

    Is it going to be like this every single update? If so, I'm done with Windows 10.

    Hello Joe,

    Selecting "No" will turn off device driver automatic installation.

    Hi Brink,

    I see that you updated your tutorial with the new dialog box in the Control Panel. Are you sure it still stops driver updates? It's not very descriptive.

    @bobjoe,

    Sorry for the late reply Joe. I missed your reply.

    Yes, it still performs the same action to disable automatic device driver update. Microsoft only simplified it to yes/no setting now.
