    How to determine the way I want to receive Updates on windows 10

    I have windows 10 Home and the updates are downloaded and installed without any action from me. I know I can delay the installations, bit I would like to be able to decide wich updates I download and install

    The Microsoft Hide/Show utility should do the job

    Click on the link below:
    Windows Updates - Hide or Show in Windows 10

    And welcome to the forum

    Thank you but this is not what I am looking fore. In Win 7 from time to time you received a message that updates were available. Then when you opened this message, you could see what updates you could install. You had the option to choose wich to install and wich not. This option seems to be available in the Pro and Enterprise version but not in the Home version that I use. That is what I am looking for

    In 10 it is not that simple, you have to set Windows Updates to Notify and then use the above utility to choose, which you do not want to install. Input this into CMD as admin, then check for updates:

    reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU" /v "AUOptions" /t REG_DWORD /d 2 /f
