    How to - Turn off Windows Update's peer-to-peer ''Uploading' in Win 10

    By default, Windows 10 has a 'hidden' setting that allows peer-to-peer 'uploading' of Windows Updates to other devices, either on the same network or including the internet as well.

    By 'hidden' I mean that there's no mention of this P2P service during upgrade/setup and the setting is buried within Windows Update.

    To turn it off, do this:
    1. Click on Start.
    2. Click on Settings.
    3. Click on Update & security.
    4. Click on Windows Update.
    5. Click on Advanced options.
    6. Click on Choose how updates are delivered.
    7. Slide the toggle switch from On to Off.
    8. Close Settings.

    Note: You can also do this via a REG file.

    Hope this helps...

    It controls "Downloading" too though. (This was in the newsletter a year ago, and has since been discussed here a bunch of times.)

    I'm one of those who chose not to re-subscribe recently following the price hike. I can no longer get to any newsletters, not even the ones I paid for during the many years I was a subscriber.
