Disable Windows 10 Automatic restart

"regedit" without quotes.
Head to this location:
Now right click on the folder called “Windows” and click
"Key" and name it as WindowsUpdate
Now right click the folder you just created
"WindowsUpdate" and create a new key named
"AU" without quotes.
Then right click the

"AUOptions" value by right clicking it. Change the value to
"3", which means that Windows will automatically download updates, but it will not restart unless you decide to install the updates. You can also value it as
"2", which means Windows will ask you also to download the updates.
