i upgraded to 10 because they weren t going to take no for an answer and now it is forcing updates every other day. the whole we re restarting in 15 minutes whether you like it or not. how do i disable updates? i m about to disable it forever with fire.
When you set a connection as “metered,” Windows 10 won’t automatically download updates on it. Windows 10 will automatically set certain types of connections — cellular data connections, for example — as metered. However, you can set any connection like as a metered connection.So, if you don’t want Windows 10 automatically downloading updates on your home network connection, just set it as a metered connection. Windows 10 will automatically download updates when you connect your device to an unmetered network, or when you set the network it’s connected to as unmetered again. And yes, Windows will remember this setting for each individual network, so you can disconnect from that network and reconnect all you like.Do you have an Internet connection with limited data? Just mark it as metered and Windows 10 won’t automatically download updates on it. If your connection offers unlimited downloads at a specific time — for example, during the middle of the night — you could mark the connection as unmetered occasionally at these times to download updates and mark it as metered after the updates are downloaded.To change this option, open the Settings app, head to Network & Internet > Wi-FI, and click “Manage Known Networks”. Choose your Wi-Fi network and click “Properties”. From there, enable the “Set as metered connection” option. This option only affects the Wi-Fi network you’re currently editing, but Windows will remember this setting for each individual Wi-Fi network on which you change it. (If you haven’t gotten the Anniversary Update yet, this option will be in Settings > Network & Internet > Advanced Options.)
You have no control over Windows 10 updates. EXCEPT if you use WIFI, You can Set WIFI as a metered Connection and it will not download updates.
I resisted and have kept Windows 7.
Simply shut down the computer every time they happen. I now it says not to, but it works great.
You can't, they did it on purpose! It ruined my computer and it corrupted all my files!!
