Windows server update setting RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am new to windows server 2019. I am looking for the setting that is in server 2008 but I couldn't find it in server 2019. Please see the image below. Where is "Download updates but let me choose whether to install them" in 2019?

    Thanks in advance!

    You can control most by using Group Policies (GPO), or you can install and configure Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) to control your updates.

    You can for example control the Windows Updates behavior with the following GPO:
