    How can I discard windows 10 update ?


    Hello

    I have a laptop running windows 8.1 and I'm happy with it. Every now and then It suggests to upgrade to windows 10 but I refuse to do that.

    The problem is that every time I want to get regular microsoft updates Windows 10 is also bundled with the rest of the updates, and I cannot discard it !
    It seems like Microsoft is preventing me from getting any updates to my win 8.1 unless I upgrade to win 10.

    Is it really their policy ? Is there a way to get other updates and discard windows 10 update ?

    Thank you

    Hello

    Just forget it, I found how to do it. It was just there in the optional updates.
