With previous versions of Windows, you could change updates to “Download and Notify”, but Microsoft has hidden this option in Windows 10.

1) Open the Run command (Win + R), in it type: gpedit.msc and press Enter

2) Navigate to: Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update

3) Open this and change the Configure Automatic Updates setting to “2 – Notify for download and notify for install

4) Open the Settings app (Win + I) and navigate to: Update and Security > Windows Updates. Click “Check for updates” which applies the new configuration setting

5) Restart
