    Windows 10 Updates can't be turned off


    I've been reading that some versions of Windows 10 will not offer the option to delay or turn off Updates. You can schedule when the updates install so I guess that is a way to delay ?
    Microsoft will do this using three types of service branches for Windows 10:

    Service Branch Options Edition
    Current Branch
    • Security Updates, Features and Fixes are automatically applied.
    • There is no option to delay or customize these updates.
    • Windows 10 Home
    Current Branch for Business (CBB)
    • CBB includes the requirements of the Current Branch, but also provides the option of customizing when and which Security Updates, Features and Fixes are applied, similar to how Windows Update works today in current versions of Windows.
    • Updates cannot be deferred indefinitely.
    • Windows Updates can be managed using enterprise management tools such as Windows Update for Business and/ WSUS.
    • Windows 10 Pro
    • Windows 10 Enterprise
    • Windows 10 Education
    Long Term Servicing Branch (LTSB)
    • Only available to volume license customers running Windows 10 Enterprise.
    • Flexible options for managing Windows Updates.
    • Windows Updates can be customized to only accept Security Fixes.
    • Windows Updates can be managed using enterprise management tools such as Windows Update for Business and/ WSUS.
    • Windows 10 Enterprise

    For most of us, there will be no option. From your own post -
