Wushowhide is a Microsoft application that gives you the option to show or hide Windows updates. This software, upon installation, will present you with the option to hide updates, which essentially means that Windows won't download and install them. It also offers you the option to show hidden updates, which Windows will automatically install.
You might want to use Wushowhide if you'd like to avoid accepting significant updates until you're sure of their stability. It’s common for new updates to include bugs that affect Windows in unexpected and frustrating ways. It's easy to use, free and is just a short download. It’s similar to how Aegis works.
A common problem
It's not uncommon for a driver update to cause issues on your PC, including general instability and even frequent system crashes. In those cases, you're going to want to roll back your computer to a time before you completed the update. This should be easy to do with the built-in System Restore feature.
After this, use Wushowhide to ensure that Windows won’t install this update again, at least until they've fixed the bug. Alternatively, you can always uninstall the update in the Control Panel, where you should search ‘view installed updates’.
Wushowhide is entirely safe to use. Since Microsoft developed it and it's not a third-party app, you can be confident that there will be no malware hidden in it.
This freeware is really tiny at just about 50 KB in size. It works on Windows 7, 8 and 10. It won’t work on any operating system other than Microsoft Windows. The app has been available for many years and is thoroughly tested and reliable.
A simple solution
Wushowhide is a simple solution if you're a little bit wary about driver and software updates or if you'd like to postpone them until you have more bandwidth available. This is especially true if your Internet is capped. The app is well worth the download and takes just a few seconds to get set up.
