Microsoft allows users to block Windows 10 updates

Microsoft allows users to block Windows 10 updates

Despite all Microsoft efforts to improve Windows 10 and market it as the best Windows version ever to come out, the new OS will likely arrive with one controversial feature – all updates that Windows 10 will receive will be mandatory. This is a first for Windows since until now users were able to choose whether to install updates or not.

In an attempt to remedy the situation (and to improve the Windows 10 image for sure) Microsoft has created a tool that allows end users to prevent some Windows 10 updates from installing. While the software tool will not block all updates, it will allow users to prevent the installation of the latest drivers for their graphics cards. This is a response to some issues NVIDIA drivers for Windows 10 have been experiencing with the end result being a seriously messed up computer. The tool comes in the form of a software update itself called KB3073930 and allows users to hide or block Windows 10 updates as well as new driver versions. There’s a catch, though – the tool is only available for the Windows 10 Insider program and its presence in the final version of Windows 10 has not been confirmed.

We will see if the KB3073930 tool is in Windows 10 tomorrow, when the new OS will debut.
