    Win 10 .Iso update frequency + other question.


    Hello,

    I want to ask, under what time interval does MS actually refreshes its .ISO ? (Official site).
    I understand, the official .iso would have been uploaded after the anniversary update and now I wonder when would be the next .iso update.

    Also, I am buying a new laptop next week that comes with Win home, and I know I cannot stop updates in home version and I don't want to update to latest anniversary update. Any workaround to stop it ? (I wana stop the latest update as I know many users are reporting freezes etc..)

    If you come on to forums looking for issues, you will find them.

    Remember only a tiny fraction of people get issues, and those who do not rarely post to say things are fine.

    RE. isos, they are updated occasionally eg after a few months. So it is unlikely an iso update is imminent.

    Okay, so I understand .Iso wont get updated anytime soon, but is there any official notification from MS when they change the .iso?

    Also, pls let me know how can I stop Win Home from updating automatically....

    Updates are there for a reason, making more secure and improving the efficiency of the O/S.
    Occasionally M$ slips up, usually a fix is issued soon after.....Better safe than sorry.

    It really does not matter that much with the new cumulative update approach. It is far more efiicient than the old style windows 7 individual updates.

    Re. home - you can only stop all updates which is not a good idea. MS felt they had to tackle issue of users not updating and leaving many systems totally insecure.

    Update issues nearly always come back to poor vendor driver support rather than W10 itself.

    Setup your internet as a metered connection. This will allow you to postpone your Win 10 updates. See the following for details: Enable Metered Connection to Delay Windows 10 Updates

    Leave less than 8 GB free on your Windows drive (the so-called "Boot" drive) Windows 10 will not be able to upgrade with so little space.

    Seriously though, there was a rumour that Microsoft have planned no "feature upgrades" before 2017, and then 2 feature upgrades during 2017 - see:

    Yes, I have heard that in metered connection MS doesn't DL any updates in background. (Never tried it yet)

    kk

    Also in Win 10 Pro - if say I go abroad and don't want any updates getting downloaded for obvious reasons - There too metered connection will help ? Any other tweaks or something in Pro. ?
