    I don't want version 1607


    I'm on Windows 10 Pro Version 1511 Build 10586.839. I'd like to keep using Version 1511. I keep getting pushed to install Version 1607. Is there some way I can stay with 1511 and not get the frequent pushes to update to 1607?

    Thanks for any information.

    If you have '10 Pro, use the Defer feature updates setting.

    You can disable Windows updates altogether by various means, but if using Defender you would need to set up a scheduled task to keep it updated (you can search the forum for a thread on that).

    You can set updates to notify only (e.g. using Winaero's free tweaker).

    You can set your connection (Wifi and ethernet) to metered.

    You can search the tutorial section e.g.
    Enable or Disable Check for Windows Updates in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Windows Update Activation Tutorials
    Windows Update - Defer Feature and Quality Updates in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Windows Update Activation Tutorials

    I don't think you can delay it forever. Technically you could but 1511 will stop getting security updates at some point.

    1507 will stop getting updates in May. Windows 10 v1607 media now available Windows for IT Pros

    1511 will stop getting updates at some point also (perhaps 60 days after version 1703 goes to CBB unless they delay it again).

    Hi there

    Why not run it as a Virtual Machine --then you can keep using it until the end of the universe !!!!!

    I'm not sure why you don't want later versions - but if it's because you want to run older legacy software then the VM way is perfect to do it.

    Here's a W98 VM and an XP VM both running with vmware

    Thanks for all replies. I'm currently on 1511 10586.842 and have decided it's best for me to go to the latest build of 1607, but not to the Creator's Edition 1703.

    So how can I easily go to 1607 at this point? It is not showing up as an available update now.

    You can get the version 1607 ISO file using the ISO download tool here:
    Microsoft Windows and Office ISO Download Tool

    Mount the ISO file and run setup.exe inside Windows to upgrade to version 1607.

    Thanks, NavyLCDR. I'm going to give that a try.

    Windows 10 Enterprise 2015 LTSB x64

    Just from my experience, I did not like the anniversary update on my machine, it used to much of my resources at idle speeds, I went back to a May 2016 version of LTSB 2015.

    But yes, you can stay if you don't want to update. Just simply disable the Windows Update Service, Update Orchestrator Service, and Windows Modules Installer.

    I also disable all the Windows Update tasks in Task scheduler.

    Now you may or may not want to do that depending on your needs. But for me, this does what I want. Since I am not concerned about security updates or any for that matter.

    Please note a good number experienced problems with 1607, until it was updated over the following 3 months or so. I suggest:
    1. Create a disk image (Windows Backup) of what you have before you attempt the upgrade (Macrium Reflect (free) + external disk for the image file(s) ) + its boot medium.
    That gives you a second chance should things go wrong.

    2. Upgrade and accept updates during the upgrade.

    3. Before you upgrade, make sure you have at least 500Mb of unallocated space on your system disk/partition and sufficient free space on C: for a spare copy of Windows (Windows.old) and working space in addition.

    I've not experienced performance issues with it.

    How does this help?

    Even in a VM, Windows will still try and upgrade unless OP deliberately blocks upgrades which will block all future updates even in AU version.

    Besides, eventually, it will time-bomb out and not be usable anyway.
