Windows 10. I try to use it for occasional gaming, but every time I boot the damn thing it downloads 1GB of "fixes" and I have to wait 30m to game properly. Then when framerates drop, I don't know if my updates triggered further updates or just what exactly is happening.

This control should not be taken away from users.

Have you checked your update log? There's probably something fucky going on if you keep downloading the same updates

I never checked the log, not a bad idea. I think the issue comes from only booting it every 3 months or so. But I need to pause updates sometimes or it breaks the whole experience.

only booting it every 3 months or so.

Yeah, that makes sense.
