Windows 10 always install cumulative updates automatically, even if you're against them, but you can use these steps to stop this behavior and decide when to install them.
On Windows 10, cumulative updates are no longer optional, they're mandatory, which means that they download and install automatically as soon as they're ready. Although this new mechanism is a convenient approach to ensure that every device has the latest security patches, bug fixes, and improvements, it's not an option that everyone likes.
If you have a computer running Windows 10, depending on the edition, it's still possible to regain some of the control and stop automatic updates using the Local Group Policy Editor or Registry.
