    I want Windows Update in Windows 10 to Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them.

    So I did this:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX]
    "IsConvergedUpdateStackEnabled"=dword:00000000

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX\Settings]
    "UxOption"=dword:00000000

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\AutoUpdate]
    "AUOptions"=dword:00000002


    However, despite showing me what all updates are available, Windows Update is automatically silently downloading the available updates. I want that to stop. What else must I need to do?

    Once you block an update in the old menu, it's no longer offered in the modern UI

    There is Android Linux and he can possibly make use of that - if he is not satisfied with what Microsoft is doing with Windows 10.

    This is beta software. Disabling autoupdate has been disabled for the beta. It's part of the terms you agreed to when you downloaded the TP. It will return when the software is final. If you don't like it don't use beta software. :rolleyes:
