Here’s a quick fix if you want to disable Windows 10 consumer editions auto restart feature after an auto update patch. It requires one change in windows registry by changing a 0 to a 1. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREPoliciesMicrosoftWindowsWindowsUpdateAU and change the DWord 32 value of NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers from 0 to 1.
For Windows Enterprise you need to use the Local Group Policy Editor by typing Win + R, then gpedit.msc, enter, then got to Computer Configuration – Administrative Templates – Windows Components – Windows Update and sort the table you see to the right by the setting setting column.
