    I tried using Google and it showed me where it's supposed to be but when I looked it up on the computer it just wasn't there.

    So where am I suppose to look for it?

    EDIT: Found it after pressing on the Start Button > Settings (it doesn't work through Control Panel)

    Nowhere, Windows 10 updates automatically.
    You have no way to stop it.

    However it's real:

    Windows 10 Home: Auto-update with no way to block it (not 100% real, Microsoft provided an external software to hide unwanted updates)
    Windows 10 Pro: You can hide unwanted updates but not disable the whole update process
    Windows 10 Enterprise: You can disable Windows Update

    Yeah you found the settings. Is there a way to turn it off? The only thing you can do is set it to not reboot your comptuter. Updates will still download. They will be installed after you reboot manually.

    Yeah, not necessarily turn 'em off completely but at least it pauses them so it's a better option.

    There is one way to disable updates. You need to manually disable the service (either in GPO, or in registry). The problem is that NO updates at all will install. You cannnot choose which updates you want.

    About hiding
    If you hide update, it won't install. However if you can see the update in the list, it's already downloading.

    Well, guess I'll leave as is because it's good to install updates from time to time.

    Btw, do you know if it's possible to hide the Start Button?
