Hello everyone, I been in a problem since many days due to windows automatic updates. Though I'm working at my home as a content writer. While working on my lapi just in 2 weeks. I get a message for updates. I have been looking for an option to stop this updates for me but it doesn't work out.
In every 2 weeks, it asks for updates, when I update it, it takes almost 1 hours to complete the process which consumes my most of time in waiting. If anyone knows the solution let me know, please.
Which version of Windows 10 are you using?
OS build is the build number which will be shown up in Command Prompt (cmd).
From new to old
▶ Version 1803 (OS build 17134)
▶ Version 1709 (OS build 16299)
▶ Version 1703 (OS build 15063)
▶ Version 1607 (OS build 14393)
▶ Version 1511 (OS build 10586)
Each version has different setups. But each version/configuration is better than the past one.
There is a workaround:
You can disable the Windows Update Service.
-> Control Panel
-> Open Administrative tools. ("C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Administrative Tools")
-> Open Services
-> Find the "Windows Update" service and double click on it to open the option window.Change the Startup option from "Manual" to "Disabled".
To go to services there are two shortcuts I know.
- Please copy this %windir%\system32\services.msc and past it to your "windows file explorer" window and press "Enter". The Services window will open. And than apply the last step (in red) above.
- Or press the windows logo and the "r" letter on your keyboard together (winlogo+r). The Run windows will appear. Paste %windir%\system32\services.msc to the field Open: and hit "Enter" on keyboard or click the "OK" button below. The Services window will open. And than apply the last step (in red) above.
I hope this article will help you out.
