    I want control over when Windows 10 installs updates. But when I try to change update settings, Windows tells me this function is controlled by the system administrator.

    Well, I am the system administrator so what do I do to fix it?

    I'm not sure you can do in the Tech Preview, it was called out in the ToS and EULA. One of the upcoming updates will allow you level of control, a Fast (All when available), Medium (You chose features and Important and Critical install automatically) and Slow (Enterprise you chose) settings....

    Thanks but the odd part is when I first installed W10 I could disable updates and make them manual. This admin limitation is new despite the fact I've installed no updates.

    I mean it's ok, it just means I have to reinstall my Intel HD drivers every time it does that hardware update thing. I want my HD Control Panel whether MS thinks I need it or not.
