    Can the optional updates be hidden?


    Good morning.
    I ask if it is possible to hide the optional updates that are presented by Windows Update?
    Thanks

    It is a rolling fix, needs to be installed.

    Well, it only has new non-security fixes, so it's marked as optional and does not need to be installed. When the next 'Patch Tuesday' update is released with new security patches that one is not optional. Because it will contain the fixes from this optional KB4517211 update this one will no longer be offered.

    As for the OP's question "...is possible to hide the optional updates that are presented by Windows Update?" the answer is no, you can't stop it finding them without disabling windows update. Any individual update can be hidden, but you'd have to do that for each optional update after it appears.

    But as they are optional you can just ignore them, you'll still be able to check for updates and keep up to date with the non-optional updates.
