How To Manual Disable Auto Update On Window 10 System




If you use Windows 10 Pro, then you can use the Local Group Policy Editor to disable automatic updates permanently, or you can change the Windows Update policy settings to decide when updates should install.

To Manual Disable Auto Update On Window 10 System

  • Open Start.
  • Search for gpedit.msc and select the top result to launch the Group Policy Editor.
  • Navigate to the following path:
  • Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update
  • Double-click the Configure Automatic Updates policy on the right side.

  • Check the Disabled option to turn off the policy.

  • Click the Apply button.
  • Click the OK button.
After you complete the steps, Windows 10 will stop downloading updates automatically on your computer. However, you'll continue to be able to install patches manually from Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update, and clicking the Check for updates button.

If you want to re-enable automatic updates, you can always revert the changes using the same instructions, but on step No. 5, make sure to select the Not Configured option.

Limiting updates

Alternatively, if disabling the policy isn't working for you, it's possible to customize the automatic updates policy using the Group Policy Editor to limit the availability of updates on your device.

To manage Windows Update automatic downloads with Group Policy, use these steps:
  • Open Start.
  • Search for gpedit.msc and select the top result to launch the experience.
  • Navigate to the following path:
  • Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update
  • Double-click the Configure Automatic Updates policy on the right side.
  • Check the Enable option to turn on the policy.
  • In the "Options" section, 
  1. Select the option to configure automatic updates on Windows 10:
  2. Notify for download and auto install.
  3. Auto download and notify for install.
  4. Auto download and schedule the install.
  5. Allow local admin to choose setting.
Note: The closest option to disable automatic updates is the 2 - Notify for download and auto install option, but you can select any other option that best fits your situation.
  • Click the Apply button.
  • Click the OK button.
Once you complete the steps, automatic updates will be disabled on Windows 10. However, when a new update becomes available, you'll receive a notification to download and install updates manually from the Windows Update settings page.
