    How to download Optional Updates?

    The Update Troubleshooter detects that I have these optional updates
    These updates are in the "optional updates" section on Windows 8.1/8/7

    but then I have no way of updating them because the native Windows Update doesn't allow me to choose the updates that I want.

    I have no way to select those updates in Windows Update because it only shows the Critical Updates.

    Any solutions?
