Hello @Dark Rookie
You can set a registry key, to lock into the "target version" of Windows 10 without engaging the Windows 11 update, but at the same it will not block the downloads of new Windows Updates for Windows 10. Just, if a new version of Windows is released, something like 22H1 or similar, you will need to change it.
Go to the registry editor, then navigate to the path: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate
On the right pane, double-click the “TargetReleaseVersion” entry to open it. If you don’t see this entry, then in the right pane, right-click anywhere blank and select New > DWORD (32-bit) Value. Then type “TargetReleaseVersion” (without quotes) and press Enter to create the entry
In the “Edit DWORD (32-bit) Value” box that opens, click the “Value Data” field and enter “1” (without quotes). Then select “OK.”
Once again, on the right pane, double-click the “TargetReleaseVersionInfo” entry. If you don’t see it, then right-click anywhere blank on the right pane and choose New > String Value. Type “TargetReleaseVersionInfo” (without quotes) and press Enter to make the entry.
Here we’re going to enter the release update that we want to remain on. At the time of writing, the latest Windows 10 release is the 21H2 update. To determine the current version, review the official Microsoft documentation on the latest version of Windows 10.
On the “Edit String” box, click the “Value Data” field and type “21H2” (without quotes), or whatever your preferred release is. Then click “OK.”
Hope this helps with your query,
