    One final question: - Now that I have clicked on 'Check for updates' will MS now see me as a 'seeker' or 'early adopter'...

    No. You were only a 'seeker' for the one time you clicked 'check for updates'. Once the check had completed you were back to normal. Windows update will only automatically download the standard 'Patch Tuesday' 'B' releases from now on. You'd have to click 'check for updates' again each time you want to 'seek' for anything marked as 'optional', such as the 'C/D' updates.


    Microsoft said:
    We also release optional updates in the third and fourth weeks of the month, respectively known as “C” and “D” releases. These are preview releases, primarily for commercial customers and advanced users “seeking” updates. ... Advanced users can access the “C” and “D” releases by navigating to Settings> Update & Security > Windows Update and clicking the “Check for updates” box.

    Agree with Bree. You are a seeker for one push of "Check for Updates". Then we all just go back to our regular Windows testing role and yes I am being sarcastic.

    Glad things worked well for you, as they should with a new device.

    OK. Thanks for putting my mind at rest. As the OP and I'll end my participation of this thread now. I hope it helps others in the same situation.

    Funny. Some people worry about not getting updates.
    Me? I worry about getting updates.

    Because not getting = smooth sailing, whilst getting = trouble.
    I like not getting for as long as possible.

    I just keep a solid history of System Images and if trouble shows up I restore. No fear.

    I have discovered that if one turns ON the "Automatically download updates, even over metered connections" option then this allows Ms to send upgrades which would otherwise be blocked since MS will not push GBs of data over metered connections. On my laptop it was OFF but now it is ON.

    Why did you originally set your connection as metered? People normally do this to block updates & other background data exchanges.

    If your internet connection is built-in 3G/4G then the default will be metered but you can change them to non-metered.

    I do not recall turning it OFF so maybe it has always been OFF but I do not know why. My laptop internet connection is WiFi via my router. Maybe the (well known) scandal of people exceeding their download limits when downloading Feature Updates (which cost them money) caused MS to change the default setting to OFF? All I know is that turning it ON allowed me to upgrade from v1803 to v1809 when I clicked on "Check for Updates".

    You are worrying far too much about these version upgrades. 1809 version update is not problematic I have been on it some 5 months. In fact at the current point it is one the best version updates, for me the worst was actually 1803 but that is all quite minor history.
    You use Applications not Windows. If those are working well you are good to go.

    Just click on the Check for updates button every now and again.
    although this person begs to differ about 1809 as that one broke something on his machine.

    while v1809 works well with newer hardware, it also breaks compatibility with some older hardware

    only home & professional editions of win10 v1803 are supported up to 11/12/2019. education & enterprise editions get additional 1 year of support after support for home/pro editions end (I have v1803 education installed on my custom built PC using a gigabyte board; using Win10 education is almost like using Firefox ESR)
