    How to Turn On or Off Give Updates for Other Microsoft Products in Windows 10

    information   Information
    In Windows 10, updates will be automatically downloaded and installed whenever they’re available. (Unless you’re on a metered connection, in which case the updates won’t download until you opt to get them.)

    You can select to also receive updates for other Microsoft products like Office in Windows Update.

    This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off Give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update Windows on your Windows 10 PC.



    Here's How:

    1. Open Settings, and click/tap on the Update & security icon.

    2. Click/tap on Windows Update on the left side, and click/tap on the Advanced options link under Update settings. (see screenshot below)

    I've had a few issues with this setting recently...

    I had it unchecked, as I didn't wanted dozens of unnecessary updates for my old Office 2003 install happening.

    However, recently (after a recent bunch of Windows updates - possibly something to do with Windows Defender?) this setting was mysteriously enabled again.

    Has anyone else noticed this?

    Cheers,

    Mike.

    Hello Mike,

    Unfortunately, it's common for settings to sometimes be reset back to default after a new build update.

    In Windows 10 v1607, how do I manage this option completely through the group policies and the registry entries?

    Thanks

    Bye
