    No, it isn't. Setting updates to notify only means I get a notification. That is, I can take action when I choose.

    Using a metered connection means
    1. No updates (in 1607 Anniversary edition)
    2. Critical updates (in the Creator's build)

    Now note this case: one person who had a metered connection was repeatedly being offered the CU.. it was creating a lot of failed download attempts, which resulted in a thread here.



    That wasn't an update- I merely extracted the information for you from WinAero's explanation of how the tweak works - nothing new.
    Oh, I see. Well I just thought your original post was a global recommendation because you did not differentiate between how to effectively do it with Home or Pro. So, if I read your initial post, without having any experience in that area, I would have thought tha Winaero tweaker automatically did both.

    Now, as far as your comment about the differences between the methods, I am using the metered connection on my Home version and the gpedit method on the Pro version and they both work exactly the same. I am running 16184; however, since you are behind in the update process, I cannot confirm what you are saying about how it works in 1607 because I am way past it.

    Well, since I know that this works, and it's safe, Good luck. You're on your own. It is only intended to help someone who wants the help.

    The video is legit. It was just easier to refer to it than for me to set down and write a 20,000 word essay. Same stuff I do.

    As far as IOBit goes, it was just a suggestion. There are other ways (Classic Shell) besides that. I mentioned it because I did test it, and it works fine.

    Actually, my WinX system is STILL running great, and STILL doesn't update unless I want it to.

    Regards.

    Well, been "on my own" since Win95 so I think I'll be o.k. , and if I need help I'll ask for it here and not from some youtuber who may or may NOT know what they're talking about.

    You can easily disable apps from auto-updating via the windows store options:

    Attachment 133554
    In 1703 creators this toggle doesn't work anymore. Whereas before one could check for app updates manually but still then choose whether to download / update them now doing this manual check finds the app updates and automatically downloads and installs them. I'm not sure if this is now intended behaviour by MS but it seems like a bug. An irritating one at that as I like to check what updates are available and then before installing them I check things out to see if they are being reported as bad/safe updates. Especially if it's an app our family uses a lot such as photos or mail. Given MS penchant for questionable QA I think it's worth doing.

    Windows 95? I've been doing this since BEFORE C/PM. I was on the Win95 Beta test team, and actually got paychecks from Microsoft. Did YOU do that?

    I also worked for the D.o.D as a GS for 20 years. I not only built a lot of their systems, I also administrated a lot of their SIPRNET systems. I also wrote some of their security routines, and security patches, in assy language. Did YOU do that?

    I don't understand why people like you, have to act like children, and be nasty, and insulting. You sound very foolish, and arrogant. I'm just offering help to someone who may need it. I'm happy for you, that you DON'T need it. Good on 'Ya.

    Stop being such an arrogant dipstick. No one cares, and you CERTAINLY have no credibility with me (not that you care), as I can tell by a lot of your posts, you know just enough to be dangerous.

    I also build laptops, and back them up with a limited LIFETIME WARRANTY. Are YOU that sure of your work? I am.

    Welcome to my ignore list.

    Grow up.

    Same here, your post is interesting (I tweak a lot), but offtopic and you are the one insulting others, I am not even going to quote it, I would not downgrade myself to it. I pray for people, who you build laptops for.
