    Might be a dumb question but since I've read that you can't turn off Automatic Updates in Windows 10 this worries me since I'm eager to install Windows 10 on my gaming machine which is offline all the time.

    Will there be pop-ups all the time saying you're offline and you have to be online just to update?

    If I'm going to install I'm going for Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB which I have read is better and more like the old Windows released plus it's without bloat and apps etc.

    I'm never gonna be online with this rig but don't want to have troubles or annoying nags about being offline and that it can't update.

    Thanks in advance!

    If you use Windows 10 offline, you have to set up a video camera behind you, looking over your shoulder at the screen and keyboard, with a live feed straight to Microsoft

    A gaming machine that's always offline? Do you always play the campaign mode and then forget about the game?? :confused:

    Possibly he has complete installation of the game on his system and not willing to connect. Most games can be installed and played offline.

    I have complete installations of all my games backed up that can easily be recovered so I never have to go online and besides I never do multiplayer or buy new games anymore (because there isn't any new games that I like at all) so I don't have to.

    As for the rest of my games I use emulators to play them and they doesn't require Internet either and I don't have any other applications that requires it.

    So 100% pure offline gaming rig!

    I'm not into multiplayer anymore, haven't played multiplayer since Goldeneye 64 in the late 90s early 00s when you actually sat down with your friends and had a good time.

    Besides I don't have any friends today, not online nor offline.

    Singleplayer campaign is good enough for me really.
