Yes, search Microsoft for its web site that will list all of the critical updates for Window 10; I looked in my bookmarks, all I have are the two pages for Windows 7.  Once you find the page for "fill in the WU number & download" and the page having a long list of WU available for downloads for Windows 10 -- you can download what you need and "sneaker-net" such to the tower awaiting.

You can create a ISO file from the update/s and install this on another computer.

This is a tool we use on a semi-regular basis.

If installed on a usb disk it will go through the whole process on its own, including rebooting the pc, logging in again and continuing the process.
It saves a lot of work if you do it more than once in a month.

HTH!

PS: I did try a search to see if I could find anything on if this tool is allowed or not, but nothing showed up.
If the mods don't approve, feel free to remove :)
