    Windows 10 Pro, automatic updates


    I have just installed Windows 10 Pro on my laptop. I have Windows 10 Home on another laptop and have been able to
    set my wifi connection as a metered connection to stop the automatic updates but I can't find this option on
    the Pro version. What am I missing?
    Is there a way to stop the automatic updates with this version?

    Hello Dorian,

    Since you have Windows 10 Pro, you could use any of the options in the tutorial below disable automatic updates. OPTION ONE would probably be best.

    I highly recommend AGAINST doing this. Updates are ALWAYS good, and you do not want to disable them for any reason. The disabling of updates can result in a compromised system.

    This only disables automatic updates. You will still be able to manually check for and install updates when you like instead of Windows automatically installing them.

    Success


    Since I have a limited metered connection, I prefer to hold off on the updates until I can get to the public library with my laptop.
    I am not opposed to updates, only to the option of the 'automatic' update feature.
    Edit : I cannot find the Local Group Policy Editor on my Windows 10 Pro?

    Success; Finally got it using the Option 1 from here.
