    Windows update settings - Give me updates for other Msoft products

    I'm running Win10 Home 1511 and I see that the option "Give me updates for other Msoft products...." is checked cannot be unchecked. I don't it was that way before the 1511 update - was it? And what exactly does it do anyway, aren't all Msoft apps updated automatically via the update system?

    If you have Office 360 or some other MS softwares installed that will get the updates for those along with the regular updates for the Windows version you are running. That's a normal function being seen there. With 3rd party programs you may have noticed the "check for updates on startup" which could either be when Windows is first loading up or when going to start the program itself you have to wait while it runs the check.
