Computer Geek Help

Please anyone tell me how to stop auto updates in Windows 10


very annoying and unnecessary half the time, especially when you have set up to do an image run between midnight and 3am only to then find that half way thru the Laptop shutdowns to do an auto update

Trevor,
I’m definitely not a computer geek but I found out how to do it on a website a couple of years ago ( I’ve also thrown in how to disable Notifications on Windows 10 as well)

Disable Notifications Windows 10
1/ Press Start button
2/ Select Setting ( Gear Cog icon )
3/ Select System
4/ Select Notifications and Actions
5/ Notifications, switch to Off
6/ Down below where senders are displayed turn all switches Off
7/ Just below Notifications, click on Focus assist highlighted in blue
8/ Focus Assist , click on Alarms only ( Priority off and Off off )
Automatic rules , slide all switches to Off
9/ Notifications have now been disabled so close all Windows and reboot computer to complete

Disable Windows 10 Updates
1/ Click on Search box on bottom left task bar
2/ Type in services.msc and hit enter, this opens the Services window
3/ Scroll down and find “Windows Updates” then double click on it
4/ This opens up Windows Updates Properties , then click on the General tab at the top
5/ Then go to Start up type and select “Disabled”
6/ Press Apply at bottom and then Ok. You will now see Windows Updates disabled in the Services directory
7/ Now restart or reboot your computer
8/ Windows Updates will be disabled
9/ You can enable Windows Updates by reversing the above

Hope the above helps

Cheers
Martin
