As you probably noticed, Microsoft is installing new builds of Windows 10 Technical Preview automatically via update. But if you don’t like this approach, and you want to stick with your current build, you can disable automatic installation of a new build with a couple of registry tweaks.
- Go to Search, type regedit and open Registry Editor
- Go to the following key:
- Within RecoveredFor, create a new DWORD vaule named after the number of the build available in the Windows Update which you don’t want to install (For example, if you’re running a build 10074, and you want to prevent 100125 build from installing, create a DWORD value named 100125). Set the values as shown on the picture below:
Now your Windows 10 Technical Preview won’t be updated to the next build. If you eventually change your mind, just delete this value and your system will be able to update again. If you’re not sure in what you’re doing you can download this sample Registry file crated by WinAero, and it will do all the work for you.
