    It depends on which version of WIN 10 is installed on your machine. WIN 10 Home has very few options, with more available on WIN 10 Pro. The minimum you should be able to do is:

    Settings, update and Security, windows update, advanced options, and select how updates are installed.

    Home version has no option to choose. The best way is to set your network as metered, that will prevent Windows from downloading updates automatically. Then you can use Windows Update MiniTool to download and install, what you want.

    I wonder is there anyway to set window update to manual and not auto?

    Or at lease turn off the update? I don't want the update to cause slow down when i am using.
