What does updating drivers do
If you want to re-enable the policy again, you’ll have to re-enter all the hardware IDs.
This is especially important to note if you’ve got hardware IDs for multiple devices entered. It’s not a perfect solution, but using Group Policy to disable updating specific devices at least gives you a little more control than having to disable updates altogether.
The Windows Home edition does not have Group Policy Editor.
Be warned that Group Policy is a pretty powerful tool, so if you’ve never used it before, it’s worth taking some time to learn what it can do.
On the device’s properties window, click the “Details” tab.
From the “Property” drop-down menu, choose “Hardware Ids” to display the IDs associated with the device.
Right-click the device and choose “Properties” from the context menu.
Now, all you have to to is grab those IDs so you can access them when you configure the policy in the next step. Just click the top ID, shift-click the bottom ID to select them all, and hit Ctrl C to copy the text.
Fire up Notepad (or whatever you use to store text) and press Ctrl V to paste the values.
When you’re done adding all the hardware IDs, click OK.
Note that if you’re blocking updates for more than one device, you can just keep adding hardware IDs for all the devices to this window until you’re done.
