Stop your computer updating
This gives you a way to opt out of specific updates–uninstall them and “hide” them from being installed until you unhide them.
This option, while it still exists, seems to no longer work in the Anniversary Update for Windows 10, but we’ve left it here in case anyone wants to try it. You should really consider leaving automatic updates enabled for security reasons.
After enabling this option, Windows Update will say “Updates are available.
So maybe you don’t mind the automatic downloads, but you just don’t want Windows to restart while you’re in the middle of something.Do you have an Internet connection with limited data?Just mark it as metered and Windows 10 won’t automatically download updates on it. From there, enable the “Set as metered connection” option.Windows 10 is okay about this, since it lets you set a 12 hour window called “Active Hours” in which it won’t automatically reboot.To set Active Hours, head to Settings Windows Update.
But, there is an option that will let you choose how updates are installed on your own schedule, but it’s buried in Group Policy.
