How to use Wu10Man to disable automatic updates in Windows 10

Automatic updates in Windows 10 could drain your data really quickly. Microsoft (unfortunately) doesn’t make it easy to opt out of this feature. While I like extra security, I should at least be able to choose when to download such updates in order to manage data costs.

We’d discussed some methods to disable auto updates in Windows 10 but they’re not permanent and can easily be rolled back by Windows. One good approach is to use Wu10Man.
