Windows 10 has been out for more than a year now. But unlike the previous Windows where you could disable Windows updates, with Windows 10 you are not able too. So Windows 10 will do a regular update ranging from only a few megabytes to few gigabytes a month. For people that lives in third world countries or rural areas a few gigabytes is they’re entire months data (speaking from experience).

 

Windows 10 has a few settings where you can “defer updates” or download from another PC. But none of these settings really disables the update completely.

But there is a way of disabling the updates, so just follow these instructions and you’ll be fine.

This works on Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10.

Step 1:

Go to search in the bottom left corner next to the Windows icon. Then type in “services.msc” and click on it.services.msc

 

Step 2:

Once “services.msc” opens just scroll down to the bottom and there you will see “Windows Update”.

Step 4: 

Once the properties page opens up click on the “stop” button and then put the “startup type” on “Disabled”.
