A future Windows 10 update will allow users to opt-out of automatic driver updates, finally giving Windows 10 user full control of their hardware.



Read more on Windows 10 automatic driver update opt-out.

Now all they need to do is have opt out options for the bloatware and mobile crap

Oh please yes!

I already don't get driver updates by tweaking policies in my pro version but it's a work around.

Dunno mang. Forking annoying though. I now have a Xeon wallpaper for a rig with no Xeon it it.

Sooner they allow me to turn off updates the better.

I looked like a right tit too. I had a bloke from a computer forum at my house looking over my rigs and I couldn't figure out why the monitor was not switching to the Titan X rig. Turns out it was but M$ had made it look just like my other effing rig.

GRRR.
