Ok i have a nice new  shiny Windows 10,Customised the desktop with Classic shell etc, and a wallpaper to make it look beautifull,did the privacy stuff,set to local user account,Net connection set to to metered etc,etc..then thought about updates...eek you cant go to

Windows update and choose them?

 

Doing research on this issue now,has anyone got any answers to work around this issue,bring back the Win update applet?

 

(Seen a few reg hacks on-line to bring back the applet but none work on my system,(Seems common)).

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi Wolverine7 ^_^,

 

Kindly read the below guide -

http://www.howtogeek.com/223068/what-you-need-to-know-about-windows-update-on-windows-10/

 

That should answer all of your questions.

 

Regarding way around, I don't think that there is a way around this. Modifying registry is not recommended for these reasons as it could lead to unwanted behavior.

 Yep. That's the way I and most of the people I know are dealing with them. Although I don't see any problem downloading all the updates.

Well its not so bad to update nd then take out the ones that u dont want...well yes actually its pathetic microslopy owning the os instead of the customer,especially when yo,ve got better things to do,rant rant...

 

And what about the graphic design on this 10 thingy? :wacko:  Elegant it isnt..(i sound like Yoda)..(Did they hire a drunken college kid?i mean,their supposedly last os,

spose no ones bothered on an android) :(

 

I do think it,ll be a better os when customizing and needed workarounds are come up with...and more apps to run..
 

 

Sure thing. In case you do, please feel free to post back ^_^

 

Im gonna research this one as much as time alows,my programing not good enough to do anything directly,but god what a pain when ur busy,as if the updates dont give enough headaches already,rant...rant..

 

I didnt even mention the Keylogging of the keyboard :hysterical:,oh their i did it.

 

And then theirs the start menu which doesnt move on this build,grumble,grumble(Classic shell menu anyone)?

 

Oh we,ll im off to down.. malwarebyts anti ex..and finish beefing up security.

 

Stay loose. :guitar:

Well. I like Windows 10 :P

It is just that I have to deal with far less crashes and battery life has improved so I am happy.
