How to disable automatic driver updates in Windows 10?

Hello friends! Windows often likes to update itself, but this is not always necessary. And often even breaks the system. I'll tell you how easy it is to disable auto updates.

How to disable automatic driver updates in Windows 10?

The problem is best felt by installing drivers on the video card. It doesn't matter if it's built in or not. Very often, the latest drivers not only degrade performance, but also completely break some functions. Of course, this does not always happen, but quite often. Therefore, I never advise you to install all the latest and newest. Wait 2-3 months. And to avoid automatic updates, this article will help you.

How to turn off automatic updates

Moreover, this can be done for different drivers. That is, choose the video card, and let the rest of the drivers update themselves. Well, or choose what you need.

  • Open "Device Manager", then "Properties" of the desired equipment. In the "Details" section, select "Hardware ID" and copy the values
  • Press the "Win + R" keys and enter "gpedit.msc". Then go to "Computer Configuration" - "Administrative Templates" - "System" - "Device Installation" - "Device Installation Restrictions"
  • Double-click on "Prohibit installation of devices with the specified device codes". Set "Enabled" and then click "Show"
  • In the window that opens, enter the hardware IDs that you defined in the first step and apply the settings.

In such a simple way, you can prevent absolutely any driver on your computer from being updated.
