When Microsoft first introduced Windows 10 OS they had said that this version of OS will make windows update easier in future. So they made windows 10 in such a way that it can auto update itself and they also said that you can’t disable this feature. But some of us aren’t happy with this feature because every one of us doesn’t have unlimited internet connection. But Microsoft doesn’t give any option to disable that one click. So in this article I am going to tell you easiest way to stop or disable Windows 10 auto update.

There are several way of doing this but I am going to tell you the most easiest way of of doing this

Step 1: Press windows logo key + R then type services.msc and click on ok.   

Step 2: A list of services will open. From that list select Background Intelligent Transfer Service and right click on it then select Properties.

Step 3: Change startup type to disable then click Apply and Ok.

Step 4: Then you have to change called Windows Update. Select the service from the drop down menu, right click on it, go to Properties and change the Startup Type to disable and the Apply and Ok.

If you are using a Wifi connection then go to Windows Setting then Network & Internet then go to Wifi from the left pane then click on Manage known network then select your Wifi network click on it go to Properties and turn on the Metered Connection. This will help you to reduce data usage.

That’s how you can made an attempt to disable your Windows 10 update. Windows 10 will always try to restored this settings to default so you may have to repeat this entire process after a couple of months. If you still have any question feel free to ask us.
