Yesterday, Microsoft released a couple of new updates for Windows 10 (build 10240). The latest updates, KB3081448KB3081449 and KB3081452 improved the OOBE and upgrade experience for Windows 10. Now, it seems like Microsoft has enabled the ability to disable automatic app update for Windows 10 Home users with the KB3081448 update. Previously, Windows 10 Home users weren’t able to turn off automatic app updates, which was pretty annoying for some users.

If you’re using Windows 10 Home, check for updates on Windows Update and grab the latest updates to enable the ability to turn off automatic app updates from the Store.
