How to disable Windows updates in Windows 10

While it’s generally not recommended to disable Windows updates as they often contain important security patches and bug fixes, here’s how you can disable them in Windows 10:

  1. Press the Windows key + R to open the Run dialog box.
  2. Type in “services.msc” and press Enter.
  3. Scroll down to find “Windows Update” in the list of services.
  4. Right-click on “Windows Update” and select “Properties”.
  5. In the Properties window, under “Startup type”, select “Disabled” from the drop-down menu.
  6. Click on “Apply” and then “OK”.
  7. Restart your computer.

After restarting your computer, Windows updates should now be disabled. Keep in mind that this means you won’t receive any future updates, including security patches and bug fixes, which can leave your computer vulnerable to security threats. If you do choose to disable updates, it’s important to regularly check for updates and manually install any important updates. Additionally, you can always re-enable updates by following the same steps and selecting “Automatic” or “Manual” as the startup type.
