Windows 10: how to disable Windows Update Delivery Optimization (WUDO)

Windows 10 introduced a new feature, called Windows Update Delivery Optimization (WUDO), initially designed to help users get faster software updates.


Windows Update Delivery Optimization works like a torrent node: your computer is used as part of a peer-to-peer network to deliver software updates faster to others.

Each computer distributes a part of the files across multiple systems and helps everyone to download updates more faster.

However, this peer-to-peer method uses your bandwidth, and the feature is enabled by default in Windows 10.

Here the steps to disable this feature:

  1. Open Settings in the Start menu
  2. Search for Update & Security
  3. In the Windows Update section, open Advanced Options
  4. In the Choose How Updates are Installed section, open Choose how updates are delivered
  5. Now disable the toggle Updated from More than One Place
