How to Hide Windows Updates That You Don’t Want to Install

If you remove an installed update (or decide not to install a particular update), Windows Update will constantly warn you that there are updates available. The solution to this problem is to hide the update. You can always use the Restore Hidden Updates command (in the left pane of the Windows Update window) if you later decide to restore and install the hidden update.

1

Open the Windows Control Panel, and then click System and Security.

The System and Security window appears.

2

Click Windows Update.

The Windows Update window appears.

3

Click the link indicating that updates are available.

The Select Updates to Install window appears.

4

Right-click the update that you would like to hide and click Hide Update. Click OK.

The update is removed from the list of available updates.
