If Windows 10 updates are annoying then there are a few things you can do.

First click on bottom right corner and then choose all settings. Then select update and security.

  1. You can change active hours times - adjust the settings to the times when you are going to be playing and this should stop things from happening.
  2. Under advanced options you can defer feature updates but you cannot stop security related updates.
  3. Restart time - set a time that suits you for a restart
  4. If you use WiFi - go into Network and Internet and then select WiFi and then advanced options. Here you can set the connection to metered. This will throttle background tasks such as file syncing and other bits but Windows will only download priority updates.
Hope this is of some use.
