Unlike the majority of other versions that have come before it, automatic updates in Windows 10 cannot be simply tinkered with.
Microsoft will push updates to your Windows 10 powered computer which will be automatically downloaded.
This essentially means that certain connections, such as cellular services, often have data limitations and restrictions in place.Windows sets these as metered to prevent downloading tons of data that could prove costly.However, it is possible to set any connection type as being metered.Step 1: Launch the Windows 10 Settings application (Windows key + I). It is important to understand that this option will only affect the network you’re currently connected to, and that Windows will remember the setting.Method 2: Using Microsoft’s Tool Sometimes a very specific Windows update or driver update can be shown to be causing problems.
Troubleshooting these issues or rolling back to a working driver or version of whatever has been updated can be problematic.
It’s an extremely handy feature to be able to prevent Windows 10 from installing specific updates where required. Step 2: When downloaded, run the Show or hide updates tool.
The tool will automatically search for available updates and allow them to be hidden.
This essentially prevents Windows Update from downloading updates for that package in the future.
Step 3: If required, run the tool again and unhide the previously hidden updates to ensure that they come through.
Method 3: Using Group Policy Editor An initial note; this method only applies to Windows 10 Pro edition.
