    Default Can I choose what Updates are installed on Windows 10?

    Hi all and my apologies if this is a stupid question on my first visit to the site...I have a degree in those.

    I am looking at buying a W10 laptop not my main machine (important machines are my W7 ones which I wont be looking to change) and have a single question that I would like to get a definitive answer to:

    in Any version; can I choose what updates are installed rather than whatever is pushed out from Redmond. I dont mean can I delay or defer, I mean can I chose to Never accept any update I decide to?

    I have seen the following post How to block unwanted Windows Updates in Windows 10 when doing a random web search, which seems to say I can; but because it is dated 2015 and MS policy changes when the wind does and because it is not clear if it applies to only Non "Home" versions, I would like to clarify. If this patch/download allows this, is it still available now?

    Any assistance appreciated.

    Yes, that Show or Hide Update tool still works.

    But if you choose to not install some, future updates may become unavailable to you.
