I will advice you and all not to turn off Windows Update as updates like Security updates or critical updates protect against vulnerabilities to malware and security exploits. Other updates correct errors unrelated to security, or enhance functionality of Windows and installed software. But if you still want to disable Windows Update then press Windows logo key  + I to open Settings and from Settings navigate to Network & Internet --> Advanced options  And turn on Metered connection. Windows will not download updates while Windows thinks the network connection is metered limited data plan network connection.

I don't have unlimited internet traffic. so there is no choice, because windows update use a a lot of traffic.
thanks for your explanation about how to trun it off.

As far as I know you can set any connection, wired or wireless, to be considered metered by Windows 10.

 

There are now a lot of wireless internet services that allow you to connect a desktop (or laptop, for that matter) to the wireless modem-router via ethernet.  There most often are data caps on those services, so you can still declare that your wired connection is a metered connection.

I read somewhere that metered connection setting cannot be set how come i have no idea there is a trick to turn on metered connection setting with wired connection  but i need to search around again as i have no idea where i so this trick.

 

 

OP you can turn on metered connection for wireless connection.
