    Best Way to Install Updates?


    I would like to get a mini poll here on how people would install Windows 10 Updates?
    For now, I set it to Auto Download and Notify to Install from the Group Policy settings since I have the Pro version.

    Please provide me some feedback on how you guys do the Windows Updates on Win10.

    Notify before download, I prefer to have an option to block it, before even downloading it.
    Just the last update .63 resulted in a restart loop, I had to reinstall to be able to install it.
    I like to wait a few days before I install, due to the problems in past years, it gets worse.

    I have it set now to Notify before download as you suggested.
    But, what will happen if I get notified of a pending download of an update and choose to skip that download if I decide I do not want it?
    Will I get constantly getting the Windows Update notifications for that particular download that I skipped to download?
    If yes, then that would be really annoying...
