Sometimes, you don’t want the end users or non-administrator users being notified there are windows updates that need to be applied. In this post, I will show you how to create a GPO that prevent a non-administrator user to be notified if there are any windows updates.

  1. Log in to the Active Directory where the RDS server refers to.
  2. Open “Group Policy Management” or you can easily run the command “gpmc.msc”.
  3. Create or Edit a GPO and then browse to Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Update. Change the value of the setting “Allow non-administrators to receive update notifications” to disabled.
