    windows 10 forced updates

    I have just received news with regards to updates for windows 10. Microsoft are going to make these updates mandatory, you will be able to refuse them, but should you wish to download further updates you will have to install the updates you have refused. also if you read the software licence you give Microsoft permission to install other apps like Bing. just wounded what the forums views are on this subject

    Hello Reeves,

    Just like in all previous Windows, some updates will require that others to be installed first. You should always install all important and critical updates to help keep your Windows patched and secured. Only the optional updates should be decided to install or not, but even then they usually should be installed as well.

    By default, updates will be downloaded and installed automatically via Windows Update in Windows 10. Updates will not be automatically downloaded over a metered connection though.

    However, you can use the tutorial below to set Windows Update to not automatically update.

    Hope this helps, :)
