Hello,
When I'm at home, my Internet speed is very, very slow.
So when Windows 10 download automatically its updates, I cannot use Internet as well as I would like.
I would like to postpone this automatic downloading of Windows 10 updates.

Hi,

Please try the following methods:

Method 1
  1. Open the Run command (Win + R), in it type: services.msc and press enter
  2. From the Services list which appears find the Windows Update service and open it
  3. In ‘Startup Type’ (under the ‘General’ tab) change it to ‘Disabled’
  4. Restart
Method 2
  1. Open the Run command (Win + R), in it type: regedit and press enter
  2. Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU
  3. In there create a ‘32-bit DWORD’ value called ‘AuOptions’ and under ‘Value Data’ type 2 and click ‘OK’
  4. Open the Settings app (Win + I) and navigate to -> Update and Security -> Windows Updates. Click ‘Check for updates’ which applies the new configuration setting
  5. Restart
I hope it helps. :)

Regards,
Kardo

In settings -> Internet and wifi -> select your network and then you have to choose an option that in English I could translate as " the payment depend on how long you surf the net " ( sorry )

O&O ShutUP10 Should help you with this. I use it myself on my laptop :)

More control over your operating system

  • Adapt your security settings
  • Protect your privacy

Home Page: O&O ShutUp10: download free antispy tool for Windows 10
Direct Download: https://dl5.oo-software.com/files/ooshutup10/OOSU10.exe

An Overview
I undestand this tool disables Windows Update? With no option of updating. That's what i believed and what happened to me when i used it. (maybe i broke it and that's why i couldn't update later)

Is it possible to disable but continue to have a pop up saying "there are new updates" ; like on previous Windows OS ?
Hi,

Yes it is possible but you can apply it only with Group Policy Editor which is available for Windows 10 Pro, Education and Enterprise.
  1. Open the Run command (Win + R), in it type: gpedit.msc and press enter
  2. Navigate to: Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Windows Update
  3. Open this and change the Configure Automatic Updates setting to ‘2 – Notify for download and notify for install’
  4. Open the Settings app (Win + I) and navigate to -> Update and Security -> Windows Updates. Click ‘Check for updates’ which applies the new configuration setting
  5. Restart
The Group Policy Editor will notify you about new updates without automatically installing them. Security updates will still install automatically.

Anyway if someone needed it ( does not work with wired connection)

"After enabling this option, Windows Update will say “Updates are available. We’ll download the updates as soon as you connect to Wi-Fi, or you can download the updates using your data connection (charges may apply.)” By marking a connection as metered, you’ve tricked Windows into thinking it’s a mobile data connection–for example, you might be tethering your PC to your smartphone. You can click the Download button to download and install updates at your leisure."
