The story is different on Windows 10, you no longer have absolute control over software updates. They’re mandatory, windows 10 software updates installed on your device automatically (whether you like it or not), but this guide can help you retake control and decide when to install them.  And they download and install automatically to ensure your device stays up to date with the latest security patches and improvements.
