    Will the Creators edition help with managing updates

    I just upgraded my Home edition to Pro just to try to gain a little control over updates. I've one other Home machine and don't want to spend another $100 to do the same on it. It seems I remember reading some where in this forum that the CU will offer more control over the update process that the 1607 build did.

    Is that just wishful thinking? Or, is there another less expensive way to prevent or inhibit automatic updates?

    Thank you.

    Yes, Creators does offer more precise control over updates in Pro, The controls are described in this tutorial. See 'Option One - To Defer Feature and Quality Updates in Settings starting with Windows 10 Build 15002' (Creators is 15063).
    Windows Update - Defer Feature and Quality Updates in Windows 10

    Quality updates can be deferred for up to 30 days, Features update for up to 365 days, and there's an option to pause all updates for seven days.

    Also, as before, you can prevent updates downloading by setting a metered connection. This is particularly useful, as works on Home as well as Pro...
    Set Wireless Network as Metered or Non-Metered in Windows 10
    Set Ethernet Connection as Metered or Unmetered in Windows 10
    ...with the bonus that from Creators Update onwards you no longer have to use Regedit for Ethernet, there's a switch in Settings now.
