Default How to KILL micros$hit 10 updated??

So sick of this shit! multiple spread sheets open and update closes all and I am forced to sift through versions!!! DON'T NEED ANY MORE WORK ADDED TO MY LIFE. I need a way to completely stop this from ever updating again. I don't need any updates that do nothing but cause grief while microshit gets whatever it is they want.

Rant definitely not over.

Great suggestions so far! Well, maybe not great but very satisfying.

Good luck. I have two pieces of software that tie me to windows. When They are gone, I will be Linux or Mac.

Oh god, how I hate that auto updating. Has cost me so much in terms of lost productivity. I hate it, but I don't have time to figure out alternatives.

You might try switching your Wi-Fi settings to metered. Windows will not update until you are on a non metered connection. I toggle mine to non metered about once a month to update when convenient for me.

Not sure if it is an option in W10, but in W7 you can turn off auto update. There is an option to download them but you choose whether to install them and when.

If you are running Windows 10 Pro, you can put updates on hold until you are ready to apply them. If you run Windows 10 Home, you can't do that, so upgrade to Windows 10 Pro. If your computer is administered by a Corporate IT department, you can't do any of those things.

Exact reason I bought the pro version a couple years ago when I was updating my home PC.

I converted to a Mac about 5 years ago after 20 plus years on PC's...

Best decision I ever made...

Running MS Office for Mac with zero issues...

The mental conversion from PC to Mac was pretty simple...

Pickup a MacBook Pro at BestBuy and run parallel for 30 days...

If you don't like it, then simply return it...

Where's the fun in that?
Cheaper than an Apple.
Very seldom crash.
Everything is always saved as you are working on it.
Easy to restore even if completely hosed.
Easy to share or collaborate.
Updates are painless.
You can do everything in Google Doc and Google Sheets instead of Word and Excel.

You "can" manage updates yourself ...IF you have Windows 10 Pro...and not the cheaper homeless edition.
Similar to the link Yarcraft posted above...this link allows you to get a bit more granular...
https://www.windowscentral.com/how-s...lly-windows-10

Alternatives if you don't like wearing the birkenstocks and pachuli oil and used car loan prices necessary to own an Apple.....get a Chromebook...wicked easy to use. Or...if very slightly technically inclined...a linux based computer with one of the many easy to use for Windows converts linux distros.
