I have 2 laptops I haven't turned on for sometime.

How can I install ALL latest updates all in one go.
Like download a big file from Microsoft.

Also, I've got a Windows 7 PC.
It's taking absolutely ages installing updates.
Reboot. Then more updates.
All done? Yes. No m ore updates.
Then check for updates - oh... there's now 950MB worth of critical updates.

There MUST be a shortcut?
(If needed, I don't mind wiping everything on the PC.)

Thanks.

how about windows 7?
i've got an old machine - atom processor + 2GB ram.
it's been running for 24 hours trying to update :(
earlier this afternoon i got a message saying updates had failed and it was rolling back - after installing 166 updates. DAMN.

i went to this URL: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows7
i entered the product key and it says something like 'key is related to built in software'. :(

(i thought i'd continue this post instead of making a new one in win 7 forum)

Oh. You don't have enough ram to run Windows 10. You really don't have enough ram to run Windows 7, either.

The only thing I can think of is to make a fresh install of W7 (optional) and install all drivers, updates and programs you need and make a backup every month. Whenever your HDD needs some attention you can just use the last backup you have and you should have all your updates already installed plus whatever programs you had in it.
Maybe someone else may have a better idea.
This steps includes all OS versions too.

What is the laptop model exactly?
Can you provide data from TSG Sysinfo? http://static.techguy.org/download/SysInfo.exe
What do you want to use this laptop>
For information:
Two years ago I had the netbook Asus Eee PC 1001HA (Seashell) - https://www.cnet.com/products/asus-eee-pc-1001ha-seashell-10-1-atom-n270-win-xp-home-1 -GB-ram-160-gb-hDD-series / specs /
with Windows 7 Starter installed -> update from the Start menu on Windows 7 Home Premium.
I added memory to 2 GB and used it to use the internet. Then I made a free update to Windows 10 Home - it worked but it was slow.
I came back to Windows 7 Home, added Android-x86-4.4-r1 to the SD card (dual boot) and gave it to Grandson for educational purposes.

I don't recommend linux unless you are ready for a total world change. It is definitely not as user friendly and much more difficult to get your drivers working right. As one that has tried it, I don't recommend it.

It is similar to my old Asus Eee PC 1001HA (Seashell).
I think Windows 7 Home Premium will be O.K.

Sounds like it the best advice is to stay with windows 7?

If you have succeeded in installing Windows 10 (see my post # 8) and there is no problem with drivers, then just use it and then you will evaluate whether to stay or go back to Windows 7.

AmyToo actually has the quickest route. You can download all the updates to Windows and Office to an ISO. From there, you can run the executable that will do all the updates.

actually...
i didn't get
WSUS Offline Update ...
how does it work?
i looked at the screenshots... still clueless
the description of what it does seems understandable - but i'd like to know how it does what it does?
does it do what windows is supposed to do but miserably fails?
how can it be trusted? how do you know where updates are being downloaded from?
apologies for the questions :)
