I am running Windows10 on a Desktop. Is there any way I can decide which updates to install like in Windows7? Can I schedule when to install? Auto updates is causing a big nuisance to me.

Windows 10 allows you to schedule restarts for a specific time

by davidsnipes In reply to Windows10 Auto updates

When a new update has been downloaded and installed, Windows 10 will prompt you to schedule a time for your PC to restart. BUT Microsoft may be avoid this feature in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. In the latest preview build, you can no longer schedule restarts. Instead, you have the option to set up "active hours" - a 10-hour time period during which your computer will not be restarted.
