Microsoft periodically releases numerous updates for the Windows 10 operating system and some of these updates are mandatory as they are security. But as users we do not always have the availability to install them since we know that this implies the download, installation and subsequent restart of the equipment which can affect our operation, so if this is your case..

 

It makes us angry when we are in a hurry and we want to turn off Windows 10 quickly and then either the individual closure of each tab comes out or it makes us update without us wanting to. This is a bummer so that's why we are going to see how to turn off Windows 10 without having to forcibly update.
