    Checking the updates to install


    Hi

    In Windows 10 v1703, it is possible to block some Windows Update and Microsoft Store updates so that I can check the updates to install?

    Thanks

    But you should seriously consider why you want to do this.
    Note that some updates will be delivered even if on a metered (wifi or ethernet) connection.

    Perhaps, you did not understand: I would like to block only some categories of updates, or single updates.

    So, how can I do this?

    Thanks

    Your question did not mention categories.

    The only distinctions I'm aware of are
    - upgrades
    In the Creator's build, considering connections blocked by being 'metered'
    - MS will or may deliver what they regard as important notwithstanding that.

    You can set updates to 'Notify only' - that becomes your choice as to whether download them or not.
    Option 1, 6 in 2nd tutorial. Did you read that?

    Or see Winaero's free tweaker with full explanation.

    I understand the behaviour may differ in this between the Anniversary and the Creator's build.
