    on the "Update History" section on both WUMT and Wumgr apps, WUMT (windows update minitool) shows "Applications ID" showing which module responsible for downloading updates. for example "Applications ID" mentions "wusa" for downloading/installing windows updates and "device driver retrieval client" for downloading/installing driver updates.

    Wumgr on the other hand does not show nor mention "Applications ID" in the Update History section - maybe add that onto the next version of Wumgr

    I still use WUMT because i can(offline airgapped pc) but "Xanatos Vs. Shewolf personal crap" aint my business and i aint getting involved. Both know more than me so i respect them both for their technical skills. Anything else is none of my bloody business.

    Hi. Is there any way to make it start up opened to (focused on) the "Windows Update" section, like WUMT does, rather than Update History?

    Why, there is nothing displayed there until you search. After search, the section will switch automatically.

    It starts searching when opened using the Sledgehammer script. I believe it's run using a "provisioned" command line switch to start with that option, so you'd probably be able to do it with a cmd or bat file with the right details.

    Edit: Nevermind my comment above. I see what you mean. Even though you can start the program in search mode using the -update switch, it still defaults to the Update History rather than Windows Update window.
