Agreed. I make a note of mine on my monthly list of offered updates but then I hide them. My monthly lists date back to October 2014 and not a single optional update has been installed in that time. Occasionally one will reappear as a recommended update in a later month in which case I'll review it if it's checked but hide it if is unchecked as no unchecked update should normally be manually checked and installed.

Hi,
One month optional the next month important seems pointless to me :)

I don't even install optional updates on Windows 8.1 anymore either. Even though it has got until 2023 for EOL.

I'm working on my own install packages now which install like this:

1) WSUSOffline for all Security updates, IE11 and frameworks. Reboot.

2) Install remaining security/important updates (no rollups). Reboot.

3) Install Selective Recommended updates I choose (with checkboxes to select/skip the ones I want or don't want. Reboot.

Windows 7 installer is working okay, but the Windows 8.1 installer is proving more of a problem updating every month. As there's more rollups on 8.1

It's still a work in progress though!

I don't understand the logic either.

I only install important and recommended updates and don't bother with optional updates. I installed KB4034664 because it was classed as important. I wondered why I hadn't seen KB4034670 - because it was sitting in optional. Yet.....optional KB4034670 was supposed to fix up potential issues in important KB4034664.
