    Windows 10

    Well I looked at my settings and there appears to be discrepancies in what I am seeing vs what the link shows. Am not sure why.

    Windows Update MiniTool: Alternative To Windows Update In Windows 10
    It appears my copy of Windows 10 might not allow this. Or am I misreading that?

    ohooo...I just found this article and it appears to be confirming what I thought.
    Microsoft Admits Windows 10 Has A Serious Problem
    Furthermore Microsoft must still address the issue of control over Windows 10 updates. The Creators Update introduces the option to delay the installation of non-security updates for up to 35 days, but only Windows 10 Professional, Education and Enterprise versions qualify.

    It'll be nice if Microsoft will eventually give us full control over Windows Update.

After all, when I got the Windows 10 program, I did not expect it to include peripheral software outside of Windows programs.

    I assumed, as many users have, that any peripheral programs used outside of the Windows 10 software for keyboards, mice, etc., that were added by a customer, were not the purview of Windows 10. Since Windows 10 had its own basic generic drivers which could be used by a basic keyboard or mouse, I never expected them to include specialty software or drivers.

    However, finding it included with Windows 10 updater is odd. I expected that specific options usually gained with outside programming software specifically designed for these specialty items would not be that important to be included since they were so varied across the market place.

    Hi...you need the PRO version to get all the benefits.

    Hi I understand...but if it's too late then why keep replying?
    Win Pro should be everyones choice sorry
    you could try this ISO but if you have home it might not work....but just try it
    Windows 10 ISO Image
    You choose Windows 10> English > 32 or 64 bit
    Might do you better if you download it from another computer running Pro.
    And create a bookable ISO boot disk DVD/USB I can only use a DVD on my ol' set.
