  • Hi Bibin,

    To set "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them", please also refer to this script, you can set NotificationLevel to 2:

    $WUSettings = (New-Object -com "Microsoft.Update.AutoUpdate").Settings

    Refer to:

    Error when setting Windows Updates preferences from PowerShell

    If there is anything else regarding this issue, please feel free to post back.

    Best Regards,

    Anna Wang
