Just need to understand what this command does, I know I can change it after install I was wondering what it does if I didn't and just kept it on ask me later
After installing, I believe, you will get a popup window asking about installing updates again, at which time you can choose the action you prefer. So, it is not truly like never install. My preference is to notify me about updates and let me choose the ones to install. I use my computer at home and have never found a need to install updates that require direct access to my computer; I think the term used by MS is "local access." Also, .net framework is somewhat finicky and updates for it can be troublesome. Lastly, installing several updates at one time seems a bit risky to me. You have multiple updates attempting to access different areas of the computer, more or less, simultaneously. I choose to select the updates independently and for those requiring a reboot I allow them to run one at a time. That's just my preference, others will, I am sure, have their own opinions.
