Win Updates Disabler is a free and tiny tool to completely disable Windows 10 updates in a click. So it can help you prevent unwanted loss of your data because of the OS updates. You already know that Windows 10 updates work in the background and download process begins silently. Sometimes we forget to set a connection as metered connection, which has low data, and updates download begins. As a result, no data is left and then we have to struggle at that moment. Therefore, tools like Win Updates Disabler can be handy for us. What this tool does is it lets you select if you want to disable automatic updates in Windows 10 or not. If you select this option, apply it, and restart the PC, the new settings are applied immediately. After that, no matter what, Windows 10 won’t consume your data for downloading the updates.
You always have the choice to re-enable the updates. So when you have enough data or connected to WiFi, you can enable and download the updates. The tool is available with portable and installer versions. You can download any version and then use this tool.
This is the main UI of this tool. There are only two main tabs: Disable and Enable.
Disable tab provides Disable Windows Updates option, which is checked by default. So you just have to press Apply Now button to save this setting. After that, give a PC restart to successfully make the changes.
- Bring System Tray Clock Back to Rightmost Corner in Windows 10.
- Change Default Height and Width of Scrollbars in Windows 10.
Now Check for Updates and it will show the errors. That means Windows 10 is not able to get the updates. You can use Enable tab to re-enable the updates and keep your PC updated anytime.
A few other options are also in Enable and Disable tabs. These are:
- Disable/Enable Windows Defender.
- Disable/Enable Windows Firewall.

This tool is helpful for people who have installed Windows 10 for the first time and are unaware of the fact that Windows 10 automatically downloads the updates. Although some settings can be enabled manually (using Administrative Tools) to prevent updates, but for newbies who don’t want to mess with complicated options, this tool is great. It is just a matter of clicks to completely disable Windows 10 updates and re-enable updates when you have sufficient amount of data.
