    It's not so much a need to control. It's just that I prefer to run my computer with minimal data usage as I run it on a minimal budget. I'm annoyed that Microsoft installs these hefty and seemingly unnecessary (to me at least) updates. Back in the days of W7, which I long to return to, this did not happen at least not on such a large scale. There was more information on their importance and a subsequent choice of whether to download or not.

    I had may set up from the beginning to manual only because it wouldn't interrupt me at inopportune times but I check for them regularly specially when new build is announced.

    Control freaks, that's who. I'm a bit allergic to them. Had to leave a good job because of a boss like that and split with a girlfriend that turned into one of those. I'm not in love with automation, in my working life I spent most of time repairing and even making automatic production machines but had only one car with automatic transmission and didn't like it so I changed it to 4 speed ('70 Mustang).
    Is your changing a car from automatic transmission to manual suppose to support your lesser need for "Control". Or express your understanding for people with control issues, but to a lesser degree than the OP? sorry I lost your track there. I agree on your other comment though. I dont see the need either.

    I just gonna read this thread over again!

    For cars. manual tranny over auto is for more control obviously but not for psychological reasons to be in control over everything but for better performance and mileage.
    Automatic production machines over manual ones for faster operation with minimally skilled labor
    Windows automatic updates, well, I did that for a while in older windows but ended up installing them all anyway so auto updates are just convenience.

    I see your point and im inclined to agree. Though, I never went down the manual download path really. Im not a control freak but sometimes I am an "answer freak" where I will waste time getting something changed or done on the computer that I really dont need or sometimes even want in the long run.

    Like the time I spent trying to switch my volume control via windows 10 key command from changing +2 to +1% each button command. It was hardcoded apparently in windows registry, but I managed to change it with a 3rd party program.

    Let id be
