    Wushowhide not working

    After receiving some answers how to get rid of KB4023057, which I found in the installed updates list 5 times ! and it
    keeps installing if I do not disable updates, I downloaded "wushowhide" and ran it several times. It did not show any update to hide.
    How do I "hide" this update ?
    Answers will be appreciated.

    A little searching offers this article:
    Microsoft Releases KB4023057 to Prepare PCs for Windows 10 Version 1809

    and this:
    KB4023057 - Microsoft Community

    (I Googled
    KB4023057 numerous occurrences

    I don't think it's wrong that there are numerous occurrences of that. I see that too.
    Previously we've had updated releases of updates. I guess this is one of them.

    All the dates are quite different:

    Best not to meddle... but good to try to understand.

    Otherwise: you'd have to uninstall it, then hope it shows in the scan using that tool.

    Windows update minitool (free) is also supposed to be able to achieve this.

    You also received the opinion that it is harmless and inactive until you get the upgrade to 1803, and if/when you do it only helps you make space for for the upgrade...

    It's only purpose seems to be to help you clear some disk space when/if the features update to 1803 starts. If you've blocked or hidden that then it will never be used. It should do no harm to just leave it there. It can't install 1803 all on its own.
