Stupid win10 updates annoying me- Should i disable it.

is it okay if i turn updates off PERMANANTLY because they are horribly unavoidable and sometimes it forces me to update with a stuck screen. So I HAVE to update mid work. Just horrendous! Especially when i am at work! I cant update my laptop when i am at work. net being a **** storm as well. So i just have to sit there, wait for it to update. HOW ABOUT NO!? solutions please!

Since Microsoft has no permanent off setting.

In your case it's time to move to another OS. Linux has the usual Chrome, Office Suite and more.

It Is Possible To Delay Them

It's currently possible to delay the installation of those updates to when you aren't using the computer by changing the "Active Hours" in Start-Settings-Windows Updates. And....when you install the latest May 2019 update/upgrade, it gives you the option to "pause updates" for at least 7 days. There are also a few other ways to prevent updates from installing when you're using the computer.....

But since Windows Updates include a number of updates that are security related and therefore are important to secure your computer, most feel it's important to download and install those updates.

Hope this helps.
