    Build 10162 and still no option to hide unwanted updates?


    Oh well another update and there is still no option within Windows Update Advanced options to hide unwanted updates as you could with predecessors of the Windows Flagship family of operating systems. I won't understand why they haven't added this feature because I have software to install which I know is not required but it still keeps telling me I need to install it when I know it is not required. There is a Rig hack but that is pointless at this time... There are other people asking the same question as mine why aren't there any options toil hide unwanted updates and software.

    Oops forgot the attachment...

    I hope they do add this before the final build goes to RTM...

    From what MS has said so far, this is not going to change -- for the life of the Insider program. Furthermore, when RTM does come, with Win10 Home, you will still be forced to automatically install all updates.

    Apparently this will only be an option for Windows 10 Pro and Enterprise editions.

    Okay that makes sense, Although the Insider Preview I would have thought this would have been available now but they might be keeping it out of Win10 (All Editions) until it is officially released...

    You can turn auto-updates off using gpedit.msc (and I have), it then works somewhat as normal except you still can't select/reject individual updates. You do, however, get to choose when to download and install them.

    Definitely a backward step over the previous arrangement, IMO.

    In deed, never saw the option since 10074. If Pro allows us to do it, then Pro is the minimum acceptable.

    From what MS has said so far, Pro only allows you to DELAY some updates, and even then, you can not delay them indefinitely.
