I just happened to manually run Windows update today and discovered
that there were 41 updates to be downloaded/installed. The updates hadn't been run since Sept, 2015. I have set the option to notify me when updates are to be downloaded and installed. Since Sept, 2015 I have not been notified of updates. I tried to move the Windows update icon to the notification area to no avail. Windows Update is run at Startup, but I see nothing to notify me of the status. The Windows update was not previously in the notification area, but I did receive messages that updates were available. What do I need to set to be notified? I would prefer to have the icon in the notification area - currently I've placed it on the taskbar, but I have no assurance that I'll be notified.
