    The only release that will allow you selectively pick updates is the final release. Microsoft deliberately forces automatic updates for a couple of reasons. First, it causes pain points. And pain points cause people to complain... if people complain, the problems get fixed. If people could just disable the updates, then they won't complain about the real problem and just assume someone else will.

    Second, they want to make sure everyone is running the most recent release so they are only dealing with reports and telemetry from the most current version, and not getting reports from old versions where problems might have already been fixed.

    If you can't deal with the automatic update, then you should probably not run the beta. It's part of the social contract.
    Oh really? Intel blocks their graphics drivers from running on Windows 10, forcing you to use generic drivers. If you manage to force the intel drivers to work, they will merely be replaced by generic drivers on the next update.

    What an odd and invalid statement.

    Thank you for this! Will this prevent all future automatic driver updates? I got the 10240 build (pro) yesterday on my NUC and was surprised that windows update remains non-customizable, if this is supposed to be the RTM version. I don't mind regular automatic updates, but I definitely would mind forced driver updates. You know the saying, if it ain't broke...

    I'm not on 10240(got my systems set for the upgrade), but I would suspect it should function now that Win10 isn't "castrated" anymore. But as I always tell people-Make a system image anyhow(just in case). I do not like Windows updating drivers either, I can get them at OEM or hardware site, and only if I'm having problems, on in the case of an OS upgrade.

    unfortunately it doesn't seem to do the trick. On another forum a user had tried it but windows update still installed drivers for his keyboard which made it useless. I made these settings on my desktop rig running 8.1 pro and then ran "check for updates" and it still listed a new driver for my AMD GPU. I activated automatic updates and rebooted and the new driver didn't install but it is uncomfortable knowing it's lurking there. I'm gonna evaluate the final windows 10 several months on my NUC before deciding if I should update my desktop PC.

    yes sorry, I know about that. What I meant to say was that the hide feature won't be possible in windows 10, so what I'm worried about is that it will sneak install. I always hide updates I don't need when I do my monthly manual windows update.
