How to turn off update message


Everything is running fine. After upgrading to 1.6.8, I started to get a message around a minute after I load the software I get a popup message "Updates available for some of your boards and libraries". This message stops the loading or any activity on the board.

Since it interrupts what I do how can I turn it off?

Thanks for your help!

On windows, edit the file C:\Users<your_login_name>\AppData\Local\Arduino15\preferences.txt
Look for the key update.check and change it to false.


File > Preferences > Check for updates on startup(uncheck)

@pert. Oh right. I forgot about that.
