As you are aware, Windows 10 PCs have been programmed to automatically check for updates and install any updates they find. Windows 10  is also set to normally schedule reboots for when you are away from the computer. Is there a tool available to stop Windows Update from automatically rebooting your computer?

You could shut your computer off at night.

--- I’m not sure what’s the purpose of your question


However, I have Windows 10 Pro and in Windows Update setting there is an option to select “To notify to schedule restart” instead of staying with the default “Automatic recommended”
