How do I block Windows 11 upgrades?
You can use this Worklet (Worklet: Enable Controlled Windows 10 Feature Updates through Automox Patching) to control what versions of Windows updates you receive. Just basically use it to administer these steps (which is how you block Windows 11):
- Open the Start Menu.
- Type regedit.exe and select the Registry Editor search result.
- Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate.
- Set the Dword TargetReleaseVersion to 1. If the value does not exist, right-click on Windows Update, and select New > Dword (32-bit) Value.
- Set the value of TargetReleaseVersionInfo to 21H1. If the value does not exist, right-click on Windows Update, and select New > String Value.
- Restart the PC.
