You cannot disable all updates to Windows 10, except by unplugging it -- permanently -- from the internet. Otherwise, it WILL update.
The people you know might be working with Win7 or 8.1 or earlier, where you CAN disable updates.
Win10? No such luck, if you're a normal user (not a volume-license business customer).
Thank you for that info - I do believe they are operating on Windows 7 or 8 or whatever... Wish I still had 7 but I’m growing used to 10..not that I’ll ever know all there is to know about it. I know I hate Solitaire...took me forever to find it and takes nearly that long just to get the game going.
