Click here   According to this announcement Microsoft will no longer force Windows 10 updates on you when you lest want them.  It also looks as if they intend to test updates before springing them on unsuspecting users.  A decent response at last to user complaints about windows 10 being a real pain!! :)

It says it will let a user 'pause' updates for up to 35 days so we'll still get them, by the looks of it.

I get around this by having two batch files.  A double click on the stop batch file and it stops the update service... so no updates at all.  And vice versa when I want to do the updates at my convenience.

Happy the share the files or explain how to create them .

If that is true there is no change in Policy unless its for "Home" users versions - Pro and above have had this option for about 1yr(?).

Do you really believe that - plus it is not possible - as just think the variations of Windows attached hardware  users have - the latter is the responsibility of the OEM not Microsoft.

Based on user feedback we know that any update can come at an inconvenient time, such as when a PC is needed for a big presentation.

No sheet Sherlock!

It took how many years of customer feedback for Microsoft to work that out?

As my message caused a bit of confusion. The link in the OP is to:

https://redirect.viglink.com/?format=go&jsonp=vglnk_155449354971213&key=e6d017f13f6a6e8cc619287ca1b92ca3&libId=ju4hb9t701013trd000DAahuqrg9h&loc=https%3A%2F%2Fstargazerslounge.com%2Ftopic%2F333403-windows-10-to-stop-forced-updates%2F%3Ftab%3Dcomments%23comment-3630159&v=1&out=https%3A%2F%2Fblogs.windows.com%2Fwindowsexperience%2F2019%2F04%2F04%2Fimproving-the-windows-10-update-experience-with-control-quality-and-transparency%2F&ref=https%3A%2F%2Fstargazerslounge.com%2F&title=Windows 10 to stop forced updates - Discussions - Software - Stargazers Lounge&txt=Click here

This is opaque. You don't know where that link will take you as it is to a redirector. It could be to a bogus site (not suggesting any harm is meant by the OP but there are sites out there that pretend to be official Microsoft sites and most certainly are not).

I followed the link now and can see you get redirected to:

https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2019/04/04/improving-the-windows-10-update-experience-with-control-quality-and-transparency/

That's the link that should have been in the OP.

EDIT:

Now I see - the forum itself is masking URLs behind a redirector. Not good practice. My good URL has been rewritten to the same redirector.

EDIT AGAIN:

This where SGL links are being funneled through: https://www.viglink.com/

The best way to stop Windows updates is to block internet access on the router for the affected computer.

Its a standard feature available on any router worth its salt. It generally consists in blocking the MAC address (the hardware address) of the network or WiFi card of the Windows computer.
