    Yea what I'm saying is that it would have been really nice to have the option to choose which updates you want your Windows 10 to install, and which updates not to have it install.

    Example: I am used to the exact way that Windows 10 is currently presenting me with apps/features/etc. I don't want a new update to "change" things up. I don't like when what I intentionally got to automatically change itself up, without me being okay with it. I got Windows 10 "as-is", and prefer it to stay exactly the same way of when I got it, aside from it forcing Security Updates to be installed. That is 100% okay with me, but not new features, or new options which are brand new, and practically not something I would be interested in having.

    I'm just saying things out. I'm not looking for a way to change things. It's just that it would be nice if tech companies can keep a reliable structure of their products. That's all. But other than that, I'm glad my empty folder issue has been solved.

    With Win 10 there's now rather less chance of significant change as it reaches end of life. MS had a chequered history of updates around 1909 onwards with some horrible mistakes- I used a 3rd party tool for a time to stay on 1903 to avoid all that.

    As you know, updates are cumulative. The idea of trying to avoid one Windows update but take the next is only meaningful if the first has a bug corrected by the next.

    Setting updates to Notify lets you
    - not receive updates- so you could skip 1 or more
    - choose WHEN the are applied (no interruption)

    Turn now to Preview updates.
    I don't accept those and I disable them in Group Policy.

    As for total control of which updates you select: for that you would need not to use Windows Update and use e.g. WUMT (free) with checkbox selection of updates.

    Using target feature update also means you can ensure you are not offered Win 11.

    This is my version of Windows:

    Honestly, I don't want to mess around with anything to downgrade or anything. I let Windows do its own updates, and just hope for the best.

    And I wait for the last possible minute for Windows to run out of time until it is forced to install these updates:

    Reason why is because by the last possible minute, most, if not all bugs, that arise during this update, are most likely resolved by the time this update can no longer wait until it gets installed.

    Okay. I'll see you in a different thread.
