    Disabling Windows 10 Automatic Updates with Creative Update release

    It appears that Microsoft have changed their policy from 'Anniversary Update' to 'Creators Update'.

    I've carried forward your

    'Windows 10 - Notify before Downloading and Installing Updates'

    fix; however, they now include the message on Settings => Update & Security => Windows Update

    Has this changed between the two updates?

    I suspect that text relates to setting connections as metered. MS's policy has changed on that. Critical updates will be delivered on metered connections.

    They will as long as the user manually clicks on 'Check for updates', as Windows Update will never check it automatically on metered connections.
