    Windows Update Download & Share to another machine

    Hello,

    My point of concern is most of the time Windows Update gets stuck at some point, after performing multiple clean-up & restart Windows Update starts from the scratch which is very annoying. It not just waste our internet data but time also.

    Another Issue is related to Office 365 & 2016. I use Word, PowerPoint, Excel & Outlook ONLY. But Office setup doesn't have customization option & it installs all the features like OneNote, Skype, One/Skydrive, Lynch, etc. which is nothing but waste of disk
    space, internet data in form of updates.

    So I tried Office 2013, but its
    Office 2013 Service Pack 1
    (KB 2850036) – Released February 25, 2014
    so to update this I have to go through this long list

    Got'em and installed. They show failed the first time because of a metered connection. Even though I set to download over metered connections, it still requires my permission to do it. So the first tries to do it automatically, but is block, until I click download. A false negative, you could say.

    I thought you meant something like that, Rocky, but like I always say,

    "Never assume anything, because it just makes an 'ass' out of 'u' (you) and 'me!' " So I wasn't about to assume that you were being sarcastic. (Not to mention, sarcasm doesn't always come through well in the written word.) *Smile
