Other ways to Disable Windows 10 Update

Disabling Windows 10 updates entirely is not recommended, as updates often include important security patches, bug fixes and new features that help keep your system stable, secure and up-to-date. However, if you need to temporarily disable updates for a specific reason you can use the following methods:

1.Using Group Policy (Windows 10 Pro and Enterprise editions only)

– Press `Win + R` to open the Run dialog.
– Type `gpedit.msc` and press Enter to open the Local Group Policy Editor.
– In the left pane, navigate to: Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update.
– Double-click on “Configure Automatic Updates” in the right pane.
– Select the “Disabled” option.
– Click “Apply” and then “OK” to save the changes.

2.Using the Registry Editor

– Press `Win + R` to open the Run dialog.
– Type `regedit` and press Enter to open the Registry Editor.
– Navigate to the following key: `HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows`
– Right-click on the “Windows” key, select New > Key, and name it “WindowsUpdate” (without quotes).
– Right-click on the newly created “WindowsUpdate” key, select New > DWORD (32-bit) Value, and name it “AUOptions” (without quotes).
– Double-click on “AUOptions” and set its value to 2 (meaning “Notify for download and notify for install”).
– Close the Registry Editor.

3.Using Metered Connection (for Wi-Fi only)

– Go to Settings by pressing `Win + I`.
– Select “Network & Internet” and then “Wi-Fi” on the left pane.
– Click on your connected Wi-Fi network.
– Toggle the switch under “Set as metered connection” to On.

4.Using Windows Update Service (temporarily)

– Press `Win + R` to open the Run dialog.
– Type `services.msc` and press Enter to open the Services window.
– Scroll down and find “Windows Update” in the list.
– Double-click on “Windows Update” to open its properties.
– In the “Startup type” dropdown menu, select “Disabled.”
– Click on “Apply” and then “OK.”
– Remember to set it back to “Manual” or “Automatic” after you’ve completed your task.

Keep in mind that disabling updates leaves your system vulnerable to security risks and may cause compatibility issues with software and hardware. It’s generally recommended to enable updates and manage them actively rather than disable them entirely.
