Having a good operating system is something that most of us find essential so that when working with the computer, we feel comfortable during use and be as productive as possible. In this sense, Windows 10 offers different utilities and advantages, which make the usability very good and the users are happy during its use..

 

 

Windows 10 integrates an update mechanism such as Windows Update . It frequently goes to Microsoft's repositories to look for new updates and to be able to download them for both the system and the applications, the operating system being the most delicate and critical.

 

But all this is an automatic process and in this scenario it is possible that as Windows 10 users we do not want the applications to update automatically and it is for this reason that TechnoWikis will explain how to disable these automatic updates of the applications in Windows 10..
