But there is a workaround to turn off automatic updates in Windows 10.Follow the steps below,1) Search for in Cortana/Search box and open it.2) Find Windows Update in the services list.3) Double click Windows Update services.At the point that 10 is installing and tells me to relax my laptop shuts down.Update, May 15: With the Windows 10 Creators Update, Microsoft has largely addressed the forced updates that often resulted in lost work.Windows 10 automatically checks for, downloads and installs new updates to your PC -- whether you like it or not.This new feature is actually pretty convenient for most users, but not everyone wants their operating system updated on Microsoft's schedule.As a general rule, an up-to-date operating system is a secure operating system, and some people are terrible at updating their operating systems.

From now on Windows 10 Update process itself will not start in your PC which means you will never get new updates from Microsoft.Ten minutes later, you’re still waiting for Windows to update and you’re going to be late.There is a way around this: a way to can shut down immediately even when there are updates waiting to install.In Windows 8.1 and before, Microsoft allowed users to turn off auto updates completely.Unfortunately in Windows 10, Microsoft does not offer any option for general consumers to turn off automatic updates.
