How to prevent Windows 10 from automatically rebooting for update installations

Windows 10 is configured to install updates automatically out of the box. This change is highly resented by many users of Windows but Microsoft does not relent and continues to force updates and not give choice to selectively download and install them. Some editions of this OS do not even allow the user to change Windows Update settings. You might notice that it performs an automatic restart when updates are installed at a particular time. This can be a really annoying thing if you had no plans to restart your PC and were busy with some important stuff. It can reboot while you are watching something on YouTube, or doing some important online transaction. Fortunately, it is possible to change the OS behavior and prevent Windows 10 from automatically rebooting for update installations.
