Updates are important as they usually bring new features to your apps and help to correct known issues (bugs or security vulnerabilities). By default, the Windows Store
will automatically update your installed apps as soon as updates are made available. However, if you are looking to disable this feature and proceed with manual updates, here's a quick tutorial on how to do so.
Turn Off Automatic App Updates in the Windows Store
Open the Windows Store
app and click on the Profile
icon displayed at the top right corner. Select the Settings
Go to App updates
and toggle the Update apps automatically
switch to Off
Moving forward, automatic app updates will be disabled on your PC.
Check for Updates Manually
It is recommended that you check for updates on a regular basis (each week or month). To do this, open the Windows Store
and click on the Profile
icon > Download and Updates
. Click on Check for updates
Wait for the Windows Store
to search for available updates. Once the options appear, you may choose which apps you would like to update.
