Well, I don’t understand why you write texts like books here, but well.
It’s a post - not a text - sorry too many words bother you
You don’t need to write as many words as “relevant”, and you don’t need to question my approach either. But for you :
Not a matter of being relevant - it’s a matter of expressing ideas and having a discussion. Often, that involves more than a few words or ‘one liners’
If you can clarify what the thread creator really needs, you can get the following posts to provide the corresponding answers. Would you rather have more “ideas”, which might be quite digressive? We can also write some registry workarounds here, maybe recommendations to install Linux, etc. These are all solutions, yes, but changing a simple setting is more logical.
I didn’t post another solution as I actually felt that @redbike9 had a very viable solution if yours was not what the OP was looking for. I also did not think your solution was necessarily correct since the OP said they wanted to ALLOW when the updates were downloaded and applied. I do work that frequently has docs that are local HTML files - so I read them in the browser - yet I do not want applications (including the browser) using the internet while I have the docs open.
I also use the browser to test internal web development sites I work on - and in some cases do not want the internet being used by other apps/browser for testing and performance analysis purposes. So again, redbike9’s solution handles those scenarios - which MAY very well be what the OP was asking for since they asked to ALLOW when these updates occur.
It is also application etiquette to no just be using the internet without a way of controlling it. Again, in my case, I use a metered internet connection and would prefer that software not be out there pulling updates whenever it feels like it. So, from my perspective, with the OP saying they want to ALLOW updates when they see fit - I can understand why they may actually mean what they said.
