Step Two

In the options on the left hand side select Change Settings








Step Three

Drop down the box under Important Updates and set to – Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them

Changing these settings will then stop the automatic installation of Windows 10 to your machine.




In future when prompted about Windows Updates, you can then go through the important updates manually and untick the option for Windows 10.

From the Windows Update screen, click on the text that says Important Updates Available (There could be any number of these)
