    Hello @freekarol, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Most people would love to not have automatic updates, and only get them when manually "Check for updates".

    Q1) It is normal for the "Windows Update" service to only run when used by Windows.

    Q2) Option 4 still works, and will force this setting.

    Normally, I also have Windows Update disabled(I had Avast so disabled windows update was ok). I update when I see that updates don't break anything. Then I press "Check for updates". But I don't want to get update to 1809. So I tried to use metered connection. I also read this: https://www.howtogeek.com/369656/don...ws-10-updates/

    It seems that it's better for me to just download updates from MS Catalog. I just have to learn how to install .cab files... BTW, does the order of installing MS Office updates matter?

    The tutorial below can help show you how to install .cab files.

    I usually just install Office updates via the Office app itself.

    OK. I will try the instructions of installing cab files. I think my MS Office doesn't have an option to update itself.

    Yes, I get MS Office updates via Windows Update. But I can't use it now until I will be ready to upgrade to 1809. So I must use either WSUS Offline Update or download the updates from MS Catalog.

    The easy way is to use a portable software Windows Update Manager: Something BETTER than WUMT: Meet WUMgr!! - Windows 10 Forums

    I tried it and it found all missing updates even for MS Office. After updating, I disabled Windows Update. But I guess, I will have to use another antivirus because Windows Defender can't get updates when updates are disabled.
