I agree with your statement. Have had some success with gpedit.msc, but have found that MS has been messing with My PC more than I care for. This is NOT yet a fully socialist state, at least I hope! Have pleaded, cajoled,Begged them to Makes win10 the same as the previous versions, mainly WHEN I download updates!! Fortunately, My other up-daters (Antivirus, Defraggers, etc) are not so Pig headed, and do allow My wishes. I am an Installer for the 2 biggest Satellite Internet companies, and MS's policies are not in the least friendly with either, as far as when data can/will be expended. The result is, Users use all their data allowance on Updates, and nothing left for actual internet use. MS could care less, as long s they are in complete control. I have been telling My customers to NOT go for the upgrade untill MS decides to open their eyes and do what is Right. So far, not even one response from MS. Guess they think that if they don't answer, We (the deserters) will ll go away.
