They won't show up in Windows Update as they're ESU updates, and you can't install them manually unless you have an ESU license. They'll just fail to install.

Why won't MS take pity on us holdouts and give us some free updates, wah wah wah, please MS give me some updates! Stingy MS, share with us all those nice little Updates you are selling to the business's. MS could even charge the home user a lower rate than the business's and make even more money. I'd pay 30us a year for my updates!

Because they want everyone on Windows 10, it's as simple as that. I'm pretty sure MS would prefer not to continue supporting Windows 7 full stop. But the fact that a lot of businesses are still using 7 has pretty much swayed the decision for them to keep supporting it in ESU.

They haven't particularly made it easy though, even for big businesses, so there's no way they have any intention of making it easy for home users to stay on 7. MS makes very little from Home PC licences, so that's not a priority for them.

Home users should be able to manually download and install the patches with the BypassESU tool installed from the mydigitallife forums. Skip the kb4537829 2020-02 Service Stack Update for now because it breaks updating.
