Group Policy changes in Windows 10 Build 14931

by evil_pro1 year ago

In Build 14931, which was recently released to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring, Microsoft silently introduced a new Group Policy to the Computer Configuration category. It was previously only available in the User Configuration, which means it can now easily be configured for all users.

The new policy is called Remove access to all Windows Update features and is located under Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Windows Update.

When enabled, this policy prevents users from manually searching for updates.
