Windows Updates

Recommended Posts

This is frustrating. It seems that you have no control like one did with previous OS's where you could control what you wanted to install.

Most does not bother me, but when it wants to update my video drivers I get very upset.

 

Anyone have a way to get updates without allowing the OS to update the video drivers?

 

Thanks

Bob

Right click start button, click "System", click "Advanced system settings" on the left, click the "Hardware" tab, click "Device Installation Settings", and check "No". Restart your PC. This should stop driver updates.

 

Windows 10 Pro allows you to defer updates.

No it doesn't.

 

W10 Pro allows you to defer UPGRADES, not updates. An UPGRADE is like a "service pack", such as the November 2015 1511 W10 update, or the upcoming "Redstone" upgrade later this year. Neither Pro nor Home allow you to stop updates completely (unless you use the Group Policy Editor or the Services.msc in the MMC).

Thanks Jeff!

 

I just found a little check box which apparently will not allow device drivers to be installed. Now you would think that would

include video as well, will see.
