There are two new updates (one for Skype desktop and one for Windows Framework 4.5.2-4.5.1 is already on the computer) that will not load. Of course, i'd like help with getting them to load, but until that time, the problem is that every time I go to put the computer to Sleep, I don't get Sleep in the field of "What do you want your computer to do," instead I get "Install Updates and Shut Down." Until these updates appeared, the field would always self-select Sleep. How can I hide or get rid of these updates (until I learn how to load them) so that I can go directly to Sleep and not have to scroll the field to Sleep?

When you open Windows Updates and download them, let it download the updates it won't install, then right click each each update and select "Hide Update,"  it should look like this:

In order for Windows Updates to prevent you from continuing to ask for them, probably best to download the updates manually - Windows Framework shouldn't be a very hard google search for a download link and as for Skype - well you might have to re-download the program if they don't have the option to download updates individually. 

 

But, better that than to have Windows Updates constantly asking you to install updates that won't install.
