To enable automatic start / restart and adjust Windows setting which are relevant to uninterrupted performance of eReader the following steps are recommended:

Enable auto log, adjust display parameters, disable notifications and disable Windows updates.

Clear the Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer check box, and then click Apply.

In the Automatically Log On dialog box, type your password, and then click OK.

In the User Accounts dialog box, click OK.

After you restart your computer, you will be able to log on automatically.


One or more instances of the eReader will be running in the desktop. Therefore, it is important to have desktop background, colors and other parameters set properly.

Right click anywhere on the desktop and select “Personalized”.

To adjust visual elements of the desktop, go to Themes, Background and Colors. If you just want to have plain white background all you have to do is to go to Themes, Theme Settings and under “High Contrast Themes” select “High Contrast White”.

  5. Apps & features you can skip but it’s recommended that you remove all applications that you recognize as those you are not going to use on the stick. That way you will save some space and in some cases enhance performance. If you are not sure what to do, do not uninstall anything.
  6. Multitasking and Tablet mode you can skip
  7. Battery saver if visible you can skip too
  8. Select Power & Sleep and set When plugged in, turn off after and When plugged in, PC goes to sleep after to Click Additional power settings and select Maximum Performance. Close Power Options window.

You can do this using the Windows Update service. Via Control Panel > Administrative Tools, you can access Services. In the Services window, scroll down to Windows Update and turn off the process. To turn it off, right-click on the process, click on Properties and select Disabled. That will take care of Windows Updates not being installed on your machine.

Fig 2 - Turn off Windows Update in Windows 10

But since Windows is a Service now onwards, you have to keep your computer updated. To be able to install the next set of features or a newer build, you will require the earlier updates to be installed. That’s why if you use the above workaround, you will have to go to the Services and turn it on once in a while to download and update your copy of Windows.
