Actually the tool is documented as
Quote:
This update adds a new plugin to the Disk Cleanup wizard. After you install this update, you can use the Windows Update Cleanup option to delete Windows updates that you no longer need.
from here:
Update is available that enables you to delete outdated Windows update

It does not say all updates.

I have enough palpitations with Updates, not sure my nerves are up to risking Update Cleanup!

I just want to "Thank you" to whoever moved this from General Discussion. I'd thought about requesting a move but wasn't sure it was something a general user could do.

I find it quite confusing to have to go back & forth from different forums/threads to find info on the same subject. I found that out when I was guilty myself of posting to 2 similar threads. Since then, I try to remember to "Search" for a topic.

And I appologize if this post should have been somewhere else.
