Windows 10 – How to disable automatic updates in Windows 10All the new or old operating systems of Microsoft are constantly updated by them by sending updates automatically to their users. There are updates of various categories like critical updates, important updates, recommended updates and optional updates. A number of users don’t like updates but in my view updates are very important and we must install them whenever they are available. We must never ignore the critical updates, important updates and recommended updates, because the updates are delivered to enhance performance and security. However you can ignore optional updates.
