    It’s unfortunate that we have to go into all this process to make a thing so easily done in previous versions of Windows with just a click. It’s like you having to go outside your car and step over the hood to pull a lever to brake the car an then coming into it again instead of pressing the brake pedal inside. Or asking someone to help identify if you are you in front of a mirror.

    With the sheer volume of crap that Microsoft sends out as updates, it’s hard to know what is good and what is bad. So which updates do I block? It’d be nice if Windows worked on making their security updates top-notch, and made others as optional. I hate having to adapt to changes that Microsoft foists on me whenever it pleases. Things are going along smoothly, along comes an update that I don’t need, and POW! My day is screwed, trying to talk to a robot that is next to worthless in solving my problem.

    Thank you – downloaded wushowhide and it worked brilliantly. My laptop has Windows 10 v 1803 and Windows always wants to download the v 1809 updates. They always download OK but “fail to install”. Now I know how to stop the v 1809 updates and only download the v 1803.

    Windows update would delete usb drivers so no
    memory stick would be identified

    It didn’t work. Microsoft reinstalled the update anyway. I can’t print. Where’s the tool that removes Microsoft from the planet?

    I’ve been a fan of MS from the 1980s. With the publish of Win 10, MS has been steadily losing. Especially with updates which I am sure serves only Big Business for which Win 10 was written. It seems that with each update the operation of Win 10 has gotten slower so that now my laptop takes a full two minutes to boot and each succeeding execution is preceded by a long pause. My GrandDaughter is using an Apple and has no complaints. As is the case with my old desktop running Windows 7. Unless MS makes a drastic change in the User’s favor, my next one will also be Apple. But only after I revert my present computers to Win 7. This is not sour grapes but is necessary since MS knows about our problems and refuses to correct them!
