Stop applications from auto updating

Rated 4.68/5 based on 644 customer reviews

Microsoft considers Windows more of a service than a piece of traditional software, and you can't put off updates forever, and nor should you.

Plenty contain important security patches and bug fixes..

Microsoft has redesigned Apps Store with the release of Windows 10 Technical Preview and honestly saying, the new Apps Store is more useful and looks great as compared with its previous versions.

Now apps browsing, installing and updating is more easy and one click away.

Slide the bar to No in Automatically updates my apps option section. That was all you need to do to stop auto updates of Apps.

If you want to restore to default, again go to the App Updates section, and set the slider to Yes.

Most of the time your system updates its security, features, drivers, software and other configuration in the background.

So, firstly, you need to check if there are any new updates available for your system.

However, if you are on a patchy internet connection or your connection is metered, you might want to have better control over what is downloaded when.Things are a lot better now thanks to various changes in the way updates are delivered, plus the fact you can defer updates even in Windows 10 Home.There's also a feature called active hours that lets you set a period of time each when Windows won’t restart. One way to stop updates being downloaded is to set your internet connection as ‘metered’.Enabling this will stop updates being installed for a week, and you then can't enable it again until any pending updates have been installed.If you haven’t done this already, it’s well worth setting up active hours.
