I found a unique way to do it on Windows 10 HOME and as far as I searched internet I didn't find any similar instructions:

Those are good instructions. Clear and concise.

That method won't work in Home, search on 'oh, but there's more', here from Ars Technica, see how the Group Policy will ignore 0 if it's not Enterprise.

 

Parallel is that likely the option to turn off Auto Updates won't work in Home either, esp since gpedit.msc is missing from it, so whatever it changes, won't be regarded or won't last.  So then test it to be sure. And keep testing, right?

My manual shows how to actually install GPE so you can adjust Windows updates settings.

If it'll work I'll have to work until next Windows updates.
