Windows 10: Change Windows Update Settings
Mathew has already given links to the relevant Tutorials. In the first Tutorial the first two option are only available for Pro, if you have Home you can use Option Four (metered connections) to notify you that updates are waiting to be downloaded. Mathew's second Tutorial link explains how to hide specific updates so they won't be downloaded.
I have used both successfully on several machines.
As a Home Edition user, I confirm that no notification will be given. However, I use VBScript to make it notify me.
Sorry Matthew completely overlooked your links.

I'm sorry that was a typo that's supposed to say "I" overlooked.

Followed the steps in the tutorial & works great.
Just a question where does it notify me that an update is available apart from in Windows Updates itself.
I thought maybe I would get on notification in the task bar.
I use VBScript to make it notify me with a pop-up message.
Maybe it's changed now, but I'm sure that with a metered connection I used to get a notification in the Action Center that "there was a problem downloading updates". But I haven't left it to do its own thing since the original 10240 RTM. These days I check for updates myself before it has a chance to check automatically.
I tried to change the windows update settings and I canít!!!!!
I get a message saying that some settings are managed by my system administrator!!!!!
I am the only user in this laptop with administrator privilegesÖ
How comes that I canít change...
Is it possibly the Anniversary Update, which has blocked my possibilities to change the Lock Screen configuration? In Settings->Personalisation that whole option is greyed out today and I'm stuck with a lock screen, which I can't modify or...
That is my problem as stated above.
I do not want Windows 10 to update and restart my PC automatically - I want to decide when that is done.
In the Settings it is fixed at 'Automatic' update.
I have followed two suggestions to alter the setting that searches turned up, but...
I'm asking out of curiosity more then anything, since Windows Update has a heading saying "Some settings are managed by your system administrator". I'm just curious if someone's already found a way around that, lol, or if it's somehow hardcoded in...
