How to get total control over Windows 10's automatic updates
If you’re unhappy with Microsoft forcefully installing updates on your system without your say so, you can block this function using the latest version of W10Privacy.

If you haven’t heard of this program before it’s well worth checking out as the software gives you control over Windows 10’s many privacy functions, allowing you to prevent the OS snooping on what you do. Options are color coded so you can see at a glance whether something is safe to change/disable or not.

In W10Privacy 2, you can now set the program to disable Windows 10’s own update mechanism and replace it with its own. Users can choose which updates to install, and which to ignore. This isn't something everyone should do, but you can easily reverse the steps should you need to.

FAQ: How to manage Windows 10 updates | ZDNet

Welcome to Windows as a service.

What Does “Defer Upgrades” in Windows 10 Mean?
The Professional, Enterprise, and Education editions of Windows 10 all have the “Defer upgrades” option. Windows 10 Home — the standard version of Windows 10 you’ll get on most new PCs — does not have this option. If you do really want this option, however, you can pay $99 to upgrade your Windows 10 Home PC to a Windows 10 Professional PC.

Note that the Professional edition of Windows 10 doesn’t actually use this option by default — you’ll still have to enable it yourself.

Defer feature updates in Windows 10
In Windows 10 Pro, Windows 10 Enterprise, Windows 10 Education, and Windows 10 S, you can defer features and quality updates to your PC. When you defer feature updates, new Windows features won’t be offered, downloaded, or installed for a period of time that is greater than the deferral period set. Deferring feature updates doesn’t affect security updates, but it does prevent you from getting the latest Windows features as soon as they're available.
