By default, Windows 10, on a scheduled time, looks for updates and upgrades on the Internet. This option is on when you first switch on your computer. This can be a little annoying, above all, if you have to surf the Internet and download stuff and you wonder why your Internet connection is so slow. This small step-by-step guide will let you turn off and stop Windows 10 downloading data and updates without your permission!
- Click the Start icon.
- Go to Control panel.
- Click Administrative Tools.
- Go to Services.
- In the Services window, scroll down to Windows Update and turn off the process for automatic update.
- To achieve point 5, right click the Process, then Properties and select Disabled from the drop down menu. This will stop background updated
- In order to turn it back on, just follow this guide again but on point 6, select Enable.
I personally don’t advise to turn off this feature as it will prevent from downloading important updates from your Windows 10. Just use it if you face slow Internet connection or you don’t want to be stopped in the middle of your work because an important update requires you to turn off your computer to be installed.
