Turning off the update in Windows 10

Do you want to post an article on social media?

The new Windows 10 has been prepared to automatically download the latest updates and patches. Unfortunately, this process can not be turned off as it was in previous systems. If you do not want Windows to download all the patches automatically or you just want to have control over it, you should use the help of this guide.

Turning off the update in Windows 10

1.) In the system tray, find the Wi-Fi or Ethernet connection icon. In my case it will be a wireless network:

2.) When you click on the icon you will see a list of available wireless connections. At the bottom, click on Network settings:

3.) Go to the Wi-Fi card (or Ethernet – depending on your Internet connection) and click Advanced Options:

4.) We will display a card with advanced settings for the connected network. We select the tariff connection as Enabled:

5.) From now on Windows will not automatically download any updates. Remember, however, to download the patches we have selected through Windows Update. To be sure, we can check that the tariff connection is working properly. In my example, after running Outlook, there is a message saying that the connection is tariff:

6.) The fact that we have set up the Internet connection as a tariff plan will not be a problem in anything. It can only happen that a program installed by us will ask you to download data from the Internet – as it was in Outlook.
