In Windows 10 build 9926 Windows Update settings are locked to "Install updates automatically (recommended)". The user cannot change this behavior. This is not acceptable even if it's a preview build. Thankfully, it is possible to change it with a tweak which we will see right now.
To change Windows Update settings in Windows 10 build 9926 and set it from "Install updates automatically (recommended)" to anything else, you need to do the following:
- Open Registry Editor.
- Go to the following Registry key:
- Set the AUOptions DWORD value here to one of the following values:
1 = Never check for updates
2 = Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them
3 = Download updates but let me choose whether to install them
4 = Install updates automatically
See the following screenshot:
- Restart your computer.
That's it. You are done.
