    If I use MS official Driver Hider program, I can select Hide Updates, then Next, and then I see 8 driver updates that I can hide. I do NOT want to hide them, I want Windows to download and install them, which is why I do not tick any of them. Then I go to Windows Update, select Update, and it doesn't update those drivers at all... Why not? How do I force it to?

    Why would you want WU to install drivers?

    Terrible idea unless you can't find them anywhere else and they are missing from the system
