Windows Update Advanced Options Question

I am running Win 10 Version 1803 and I have a simple question that I cannot find an answer for. In Windows Update under the Advanced Options Section should I keep the option Give me updates for other Microsoft Products when I update Windows unchecked or should I check it. I cannot remember if it was checked or not before I installed Version 1803 a few days ago. I would also like to know the advantages of either checking or keeping it unchecked. I do not want to miss any updates but then again I do not want updates that could cause my system not to work properly.

Thank you

Hi DonT5,

The updates for other Microsoft Products are related to other programs like Office. In this case is better to keep that option on for better compatibility between the Microsoft products installed and the Operating system.

I hope this answer has more clarification on your question
