In addition, this periodic update feature usually encourages users to turn off and restart the computer, so that those who are working can be disturbed.
Well, this time we want to discuss ways or tricks to turn off the automatic updates feature, especially on computers / laptops running the Windows 10 operating system. The following are the steps for turning off updates in Windows 10.

Or you can also type the keyword “Settings” in the search field next to the Start button. Then press the “Enter” key. Later, you will be presented with various computer settings menus. Here, select the “Update & Security” menu.
On the next page, select the “Windows Update” menu in the row of menus displayed on the left. Then, select the “Advanced options” menu in the display on the right.
