Prevent systems for getting upgraded to Windows 11

To prevent system from Windows 10 to upgrade to Windows 11, we need following registry changes:

Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate

  • "ProductVersion"="Windows 10" (REG_SZ)
  • "TargetReleaseVersion"=dword:00000001 (REG_DWORD)
  • "TargetReleaseVersionInfo"="21H1" (REG_SZ)

ProductVersion can be used as:
“Windows 10”
“Windows 11”

TargetReleaseVersion: setting value to 1 means we are locking / enabling the OS version upto a specific OS Build /version.

TargetReleaseVersionInfo: setting up the version such as “21H1”, “21H2” etc.

This can be achieved through Group Policy as well:

Navigate to 

Local computer policy > Computer configuration > Administrative models > Windows components > Windows update > Windows Update for Business  (newer name: Manage updates offered from Windows Update)

  • Select the target feature upgrade version to Enabled
    • Set Which Windows product version would you like to receive feature updates for? - "Windows 10"
    • Target Version for Feature Updates: 21H2
