Windows 10: How can I prevent automatic updates?
The native Windows 10 Calculator is a little more than a one trick pony - It has various additional versions accessed by the Burger icon as highlighted ...
Yes I see they moved reciprocal 1/x to the standard view. I often use cube root and sometimes y root of x. They are missing from the 10 calc.
Well I have Ethernet connection marked as metered, and they're still doin' it. MAKE 'EM STOP! MAKE 'EM STOP!
I think the approach going through "services.msc" is the ticket. I have two of these cheapo computers, well $149 anyway, more expensive than a couple eggs over easy. On the first, I did both. I set Ethernet to metered, and by going through services.msc in the run box, I double clicked Windows Update, clicking "disabled" for startup type: in the properties box.
Both computers have Ethernet set as a metered connection, but only the first has "disabled" set for startup type. I've been using it longer, and Microsoft has yet to kidnap it. The second computer just got kidnapped for a half hour of my time. Apparently, Microsoft does not consider my Verizon connection as Ethernet.

1) Does setting Windows Updates to "notify for download and notify for install" via GP edit also disable Device Driver automatic installation?
2) Or does disabling automatic device driver installation need to be configured separately?...
I support a large community of seniors. Typically I have them running Automatic Updates, because they don't want to do their own maintenance. The most common complaint they come in with is there computers are really slow. It usually turns out...
In Windows 7, I knew how to turn off the annoying (to me) feature that windows were automatically maximized when moved to the edge of the screen. This option no longer seems to be present in the 'ease of access' settings. Any idea if it can still be...
