Disable automatic software updates from internet

Users who use Windows 10 complain that it downloads software updates directly from the internet, and all ask about how to disable through group policy.

To block windows 10 from getting updates from internet please make sure to deploy the below group policies:

  • Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows update\Do not connect to any Windows Update Internet locations: Enabled
  • Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows update\Do Configure Automatic Updates: Disabled
  • Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows update\Do Specify intranet Microsoft update service location: Enabled
  • Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Data Collection and Preview Builds\AllowTelemetry:   0
  • Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Internet Communication Management\Internet Communication Settings\Turn off access to all Windows Update features: Enabled

Please let me know if you have questions.
