    How do you keep Update from installing CU?


    I've had many problems with CU so I went back to the AE version. How do I keep Windows from automatically installing CU on some future update?

    Can't you go to settings-Updates-and in advanced just check Defer Feature Updates?

    Catch 22 - that feature is part of CU and you can only defer for short period if Home - a year if PRO.

    No, the 'Defer Features updates' has always been part of Pro, Brink's tutorial was published just after 10240 was released...
    How to Defer Feature and Quality Updates in Windows 10

    Windows Update - Defer Feature and Quality Updates in Windows 10

    It works the same way in in all versions - by selecting 'defer features updates' you are switching from the Current Branch to the Current Branch for Business (which gets the new version later). 1607 became CBB recently and can no longer be deferred. The CU just add more control with up to a year's additional delay and is the first version to explicitly tell you that you are in fact switching branches. Previously Microsoft were vague on how long you could defer features updates, just saying "new Windows features won’t be downloaded or installed for several months".

    There is no way to defer features updates in any version of Home. You can however use the wushowhide tool to hide updates for as long as you want in any edition.

    Be aware that when the Creators Update 1703 becomes Current Branch for Business it effectively becomes a newly released update. You will need to hide this too if you still want to keep it at bay, as I had to on my 1511 test/support PC to prevent the Anniversary Update downloading when 1607 became CBB.
