Control Windows 10 updates with Windows Hotfix Downloader


One of the main characteristics that define each of the versions of the operating systems is the availability of functions they offer. Windows 10 is not far from this line and months before its official launch we knew what functionalities each of its editions would possess, the professional and business ones being the most complete of all.

One of the features that editions lack Home es the ability to control the download of updates, which is activated by default and cannot be modified. If the user wants a finer control of this feature, he must choose to update his operating system version or go to third-party programs such as the one that we are going to show you below and that will allow you to manage the introduction of modifications in your system by Microsoft.

The program that we present is Windows Hotfix Downloader, a totally free application that comes to fix the problem of automatic updates in Windows 10. All the tasks can be done from its own interface and decide which updates to download to your computer. Its use is not limited exclusively to Windows 10, since from the tool it is also possible to search for updates both for the operating system (Windows 7 SP1 or higher) and for Windows Office (Office 2010 SP2 or higher).


The program's interface is very easy to understand. The first thing you should do is choose the operating system (Windows 10, 8.1 or Windows 7 SP1) and then look for the available updates for it. Then you can choose which update you want to download on your computer without having to delegate this task in the Windows manager itself. 2

Another point that we can highlight about this application is the option to pause and stop the update, in this way you can take advantage of the Internet connection to do other activities. For those who do not have a good Internet connection, they will be able to download updates to CD, DVD, or USB device to apply them directly to your operating system.

Windows Hotfix Downloader is an excellent option for all those users who want to have full control of updates that apply to your operating system and especially, for all those who have a Home version of Windows 10.
