How to turn off Windows Insider in Windows 10


All computers running Windows 10 include and run Windows Insider (wisvc), regardless of whether or not users participate in Windows Insider.

Insiders

For users who do not wish to participate in the Insider program, wisvc is considered an unnecessary service and does not make sense to run as a service and consume resources.

For many, the "unsolicited" services running on their computer may interfere with performance. In this post, we'll show you how to turn off Windows Insider in Windows 10.

There are 3 ways to turn off Windows Insider.
a. Via the service console
b. Via command line
c. Via PowerShell
See them below and follow the one you understand the most.

Step 2: In the Execute dialog box, type services.msc and press Enter to open Services.
Step 3: In the Services window, scroll to and locate the Windows Insider Service entry. If you have Greek Windows you will find it as a "Windows Insider Service". If you have English then look for "Windows Insider service".
