    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.
