But how to perform the updates selectively?


  • Click on Start>type Windows Update in the search bar and press the Enter key.
    • Or access it via the Control Panel.
  • Instead of clicking on the Install updates button, click on one of the "blue links" (available updates- 1 important.....).
  • A new window named as "Select the update you want to install" shall open.
  • Uncheck the ones you deemed as obsolete.
  • Click on OK and then on the "Install update"s button
