Windows 10: How to get the classic «Windows update»
UPDATE: in the latest builds this trick no longer works.
The first thing I usually do after installing the operating system, run Windows Update to check for new updates. Imagine my surprise when after installing Windows 10 build 9926 I found that «Windows update» is no longer part of the «control Panel».
In Windows 10 build 9926 access to «Windows update» are only available through the applet window Settings, where this feature is located under «Update and recovery».
The command wuapp through the command line or the Run dialog, which in previous versions of Windows allows you to open the window to check for and install updates, do not lead to the desired result, i.e. runs the same update in the new settings menu.
Many, I’m not happy when I found out that this feature is no longer available in the classic «control Panel», but, fortunately, yet there is a simple way to return to his native place.
Now, open Notepad, copy and paste the following:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
Next, click on «File» -> Save as…», name the file and save it with the extension .reg (WU.reg, for example).
Now run the created file.
In the dialog box, click Yes.
In the next window, click «OK».
All. Now go to «control Panel» to see the «Windows update» in its place.
