Turn off Windows Updates in Windows 10



There is no option to turn off Windows Updates using the Control Panel or Settings app in Windows 10, as it used to be with earlier versions of Windows. But there is a workaround to disable or turn off Windows Update in Windows 10, that we’ll talk about in this post.

Turn off Windows Updates in Windows 10

You can do this using the Windows Update service. Via Control Panel > Administrative Tools, you can access Services. In the Services window, scroll down to Windows Update and turn off the process.

You might experienced it before, when you were trying to remove a folder and Windows gave you an error which says "Could not find this item".

So what the problem is?

Sometimes the folder name is something like "My Folder ", If you look at the end of file you have noticed, there is a space at the end of file. If you have installed Windows 7, 8, 8.1 or even 10 on your PC, you can try to create a folder which ends with a space and you will see Windows will remove that space which is located at the end or the beginning of the file name!That's the problem!In previous versions of Microsoft Windows, such as XP or Vista, I think Windows let users to create a file/folder with trailing space.

For example: I have folder which calls "New Folder ", (look at the space!)When I try to remove it in Windows Explorer, Windows will try to remove "New Folder" (without space at the end) and it will give me an error "Could not find the item".
