Update, May 15: With the Windows 10 Creators Update, Microsoft has largely addressed the forced updates that often resulted in lost work.Windows 10 automatically checks for, downloads and installs new updates to your PC -- whether you like it or not.This new feature is actually pretty convenient for most users, but not everyone wants their operating system updated on Microsoft's schedule.
Those, we recommend you keep up-to-date, especially if you’re a gamer.
You can still download updates on a metered connection, you'll just have to do it manually by going to Settings Download.
