How to Turn off Windows Update Delivery Optimization

Windows 10 introduces the Windows Update Delivery Optimization feature, wherein your computer may get updates from or send updates to neighbouring computers or computers on your network.  Now, if you want to share updates with other computers within your known network, that’s fine. You can opt-in and alter settings accordingly. But the default setting is to share updates—using your bandwidth—without letting you know.



Head to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Advanced Options > Delivery Optimization.

Under Allow downloads from other PCs, move the slider to Off position, to disable Windows Update Delivery Optimization.

You can turn it on later if you wish to get updates faster and do not mind paying a bit of extra money on metered connections.
