    Download Driver Updates - But not Install

    Can I configure Windows 10 to download Driver updates but not install them? I would like to review the Driver Updates separately and possibly install at a later time..

    Nope , windows 10 use a very basic windows update system unlike the ones found on previous windows , the control on it is minimal , but you can disable windows updates from updating your drivers as a whole then enabling it when feeling like updating , then check for updates through device manager for devices you feel like updating (online search / windows update) then disable driver updates again .

    That's what I figured. Do you think turning off "Driver Updates" is the best default for most users?
