    WindowsUpdates in Windows 10 Pro edition - how to choose them manually


    One of the features of Windows 10 I don't like is how you can't choose which individual Windows Updates are installed.

    I don't know if I am missing something but I heard that this is only the case on the Home edition, and on the Pro edition (which I am running), you can select which updates are downloaded and installed like in previous versions of Windows. But I can't find this setting anywhere. Any advice?

    Thanks

    To get full control, as far as I know, you need access to "Windows Update for Business". And even then, I think it's the IP Pro that decides what updates get pushed to what PC.
    Have a look at this, Windows Update Automatic Updates - Enable or Disable in Windows 10

    Set Windows Updates to Notify, either using the tutorial above or enter this into CMD as admin:

    reg add "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU" /v "AUOptions" /t REG_DWORD /d 2 /f
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU" /v "NoAutoUpdate" /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

    Then Check for Updates, then use MS tool to block updates, you do not want:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3073930

    Download the remaining updates, more or less simple.

    As far as I know, it should work on Home as well, but can not verify it.

    /u/TairikuOkami, this works great, that Fixit is wonderful, I was able to hide KB3081455.

    I set it to "Notify" only so the next time there are updates, I can run the tool *before* I update. This time, I ran it while it was prepping the updates, and it still hid which updates I selected. Thank Ghawd.
