I'm looking to turn off windows upgrades via GPO. I've seen several solutions online but I don't have the correct GPO. Here's the solution I've found but I don't see the "Turn off..." GPO. i have a "Turn on recommended updates via Automatic Updates"

Computer Configuration->Policies->Administrative Templates->Windows Components->Windows Update
Double-click Turn off the upgrade to the latest version of Windows through Windows Update.
Click Enable.

Windows 10 already installed. I want to Defer feature updates in the GPO. I don't want Windows from automatically upgrading from one version to another of windows 10 as it did from 1511 to 1607.

"Computer Configuration->Policies->Administrative Templates->Windows Components->Windows Update
