How to disable windows auto update


hello readers,

how many times have u ran into to this issue:
you are just restarting your pc and windows just decides to install update when u dont have enough time in your hands

recent updates have also introduced some bugs (which they should be fixing instead of adding more)

so if you’re like me and u want to wait and see if an update is stable or not before installing or just dont want to update your OS (for whatever reason) then these are the steps you need to follow

Press the Windows logo key + R at the same time this should open the run dialog box
in that dialog box type “services.msc” without the quotation marks as shown in the picture

find windows update from the list and double click on it

from startup dropdown list select “Disabled” then apply>ok

this should stop the windows updates from bothering you
if u need to enable the update service just enable it again from the dropdown menu

thats all for today.
thanks for reading
