Ideally, we should enable it and make our machine or device up to date with the latest update, but sometimes we get stuck with our task and Windows get re-starts with the Update without notification which give us lots of problems. Microsoft providing some feature to stop this like-
Schedule Restart Time-
You can schedule the installation of windows with a specific time period. You can make the changes of time by using (Go to the Windows Update setting> Restart options).
Meter you internet-
You can set metered connection in your windows 10 by going to Setting>Network & Internet> WiFi> Advance> turn on Set Metered Connection.
Using this feature you can limit your data and Windows won’t force to download the updated.
