Microsoft has released a tool that allows Windows 10 users to hide or block specific unwanted Windows Updates or Driver Updates. Using the Show or Hide Updates Tool, you can stop it from downloading specific updates.

Windows 10 for home users, will always download and install Windows Updates automatically, so as to keep your device always up-to-date, with the latest features and fixes.

There is no option to turn off Windows Updates using the Control Panel or Settings app in Windows 10, as it used to be with earlier versions of Windows. There is a workaround to disable or turn off Windows Update in Windows 10. But you donít want to do that if your objective is to block only unwanted Windows Updates, which may be known to be causing trouble. In such instances, it is better to use this tool from Microsoft instead.

Block unwanted Windows Updates in Windows 10

In case, for some reason you wish to hide or block unwanted Windows Update on your Windows 10 computer, you can use the Show or Hide Updates tool from Microsoft.

Once you have downloaded the standalone package from Microsoft, run it.

Click on Next to proceed.

The Show or Hide Updates tool will scan your system for updates.

Once the scan is completed, you will see the following screen. Select Hide updates.

You will next see the following screen where you can choose the updates you donít want to install.

Using this tool will prevent the problematic driver or update from reinstalling automatically the next time Windows Updates are installed.

If later on, an updated driver or updated is released and you wish to install it now, you may click on the Show hidden updates and uncheck them

You can download the tool from KB3073930.
