Fix: Cannot Disable Automatic App Updates in Windows 10
Automatic update of your Universal is useful, because you don’t ever have to thing about updating them. But, it could be negative sometimes, because it could use your internet connection when you don’t want it to. Luckily, you can easily disable automatic updates in Store settings, but what if for something prevents you to do that?
Solution 1 – Connect to your Microsoft Account
I know this doesn’t sound like an actual solution to you, because you probably did this right after you installed Windows 10. But there are some people who prefer using a local account over signing it to Microsoft account. If you use any app from Windows Store, you already connected it with your Microsoft account, and this solution (logically) doesn’t work for you, but if you only have pre-installed apps on your computer, and they are causing the automatic updates problem, and you didn’t connect your Microsoft account with Windows 10 and Windows Store, you should try to connect it, and I hope you’ll be able to turn off this feature, once you do that.
Solution 1 – Reset Windows Store
Since you choose whether you want to receive automatic updates for your Universal apps in Settings section of Windows Store, if something isn’t working well with your Store, you maybe won’t be able to control the automatic updates. So, if connecting to your Microsoft account didn’t work, you can try with resetting the store. Resetting Windows Store is very easy, all you have to do is this:
- Go to Search, type WSReset.exe
- Hit Enter and wait until the process is done
That’s it, I hope these solutions helped you to solve the problem with automatic updates of your Universal apps. If you have any other Windows 10-related issues you can check for the solution in our Windows 10 Fix section.
