Microsoft has changed the way updates are configured in Windows 10 Pro and here I am to show you how to change it.

TL; DW:
Open run type gpedit.msc, go to Computer Policy – Administrative Templates – Windows Components – Windows Update – Configure Automatic Updates. Open that policy and change it to what you want.

  1. Fantastic video Darko! This is definitely a community service you have provided. You helped me ( a Linux Engineer) help a friend whose 90+ year old father needs this kind of setting on his Windows 10 (not Pro) machine. Thank you, from me.

  3. windows 10 is doing my head in. it tells me i have critical updates and then its not updating / downloading them. why? i have only had this pc a few days and i am truly horrified by the level of privacy intrusion. have all me settings to off. and do i feel i have my privacy back, no i do not. and now these so called non updates or a zillion updates. what?? was never this confusion on windows xp. and now like others i am spending all my time looking for solutions via good people like you in youtube land. I think i will have to look at your video tomorrow

  4. Nice tutorial, first of all I want to tell you that the english language isn't my main language so maybe I will type something wrong.

    I have some questions: How can i disable updates for a specific driver like GPU Driver.
    my laptop have 2 gpus one integrated and one dedicated:
    Intel i5 3rd 3230m 2.6ghz turbo 3.2ghz 3mb cache
    12gb ram (4+8) gpus: intel 4000 integrated + amd radeon 8750m 2gb ddr3 dedicated
    T^T my dedicated card have some problems like i have bsod on win 8.1 and 10 if i install a newer driver than 13.2 or 14.4(if i remmeber), but windows automatically updated it to 15.6(or the latest) and that broke my OS, bsod or screen flashing and i cant move the mouse(like the screen is restarting again again again) …. so i cant turn the laptop off via start button.

    I just want to know if i can somehow disable GPU Drivers updates or if i can select what driver to be installed not just see the notification and they will automatically be installed :< PLEASE HELP ME!
