How To Permanently Disable Windows 10 Home Edition Updates

How To Permanently Disable Windows 10 Home Edition Updates

This will also work on Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise, but on those editions you can merely disable the Windows Update service by running services.msc, finding the Windows Updateservices, stopping it and setting startup to Disabled.

Please note that this may also block Windows 10 from phoning home to Microsoft, and will also likely disable most Microsoft online products (OneDrive, etc...)


Disable Windows 10 Updates:

Click on Start and Run, or type the "Windows Key" and "R", then type this command:

notepad %windir%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

or this one:

notepad c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

Add these lines below to the hosts file and click save. If it asks you for a location to save, then launch notepad as an administrative user and then open the hosts file. You'll have to type this filename directly into the File Open box, since normally only .txt files are shown:

c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
