    Deleting "Failed Updates" in Update History


    I've disabled automatic updates (drivers, Win updates) by making changes to Win 10. Now every entry in Update History is listed as a failed update. Of course, no update has failed; I don't want to install them yet. Is there a way to delete failed update entries?

    Hi ChriskK,

    Are you first able to say how you did this?

    Thanks. The link seems to have some decent info.

    As far as your question, I did find THIS article, which offers a couple of possibilities.

    Edit: I just saw that the article is a bit dated, but I thought I'd leave it up just in case it helps.

    Hello ChriskK,

    Resetting Windows Update will clear it for you.

    So am I correct to assume that it's not possible to delete failed update entries individually?
