    The Settings to do that are available in Creators. You can set it up that way in Settings>Personalization>Start.

    Here, my Windows is in Spanish but Setting 3 and 4 from the top down are the Settings you need to enable to get what you want. In my case, the "Show most used Apps" Setting is grayed because I also disable a Privacy setting that has to be enabled for that setting to be available.

    See if you have a button like the one here to compact the full Apps list (third one down).

    I'm sticking to 1511. But Yesterday out of nowhere Windows 10 Update Assistant installed by itself. I blocked it in firewall and it can't download anything. Uninstalled it. Today it installed again. Does the method with task in task scheduler work? Any other fixes?

    I know newer versions are better, but there is something that changed.
    I use a program called Wheather Clock that replaces the standard clock.

    After 1511 the notifications icon was moved after the clock in the task bar. Wheather clock is not working that way. Development of this app stopped long ago.

    With Creators Update, Microsoft has made it a little easier to control updates in Windows 10.

    If you are running Windows 10 Creators Update (1703), you can delay security updates for up to 30 days. Likewise, you can defer feature updates to 365 days.

    1. Open Settings app. Navigate to Update & security and then Windows Update.

    2. Under Update settings section, click Advanced options link. This action will open Advanced update options page.

    3. Under Choose when updates are installed section, there are three options:

    a) Choose the branch readiness level to determine when feature updates are installed

    b) A feature update includes new capabilities and improvements.

    c) A quality update includes security improvements.


    The second option allows you delay feature updates up to 365 days. You can choose any number between 1 and 365 from the drop-down box.

    Note that these options are only offered in Windows 10 Pro (1703) and later. There are no such options available in Home.

    Thanks @Bree, i have forget to add that as always, these new update settings are exclusive to Windows 10 Professional, Enterprise, and Education editions. You might not see these options on Windows 10 Home edition.

    First I'm using Windows 10 1511 Enterprise.
    My question wasn't how to stop updates. I want updates and I install them regularly.
    Windows 10 Update Assistant is a program that installs itself in C:\Windows10Upgrade
    and puts a blue icon on the Desktop.
    How to stop that program from downloading and installing?

    If you are looking to control the workings of Windows 10 enterprise you should direct your questions to the System administrator managing the system
