Windows 7: How do I sort list of updates applied by knowledge base number?

How do I sort list of updates applied by knowledge base number?

I wish to review each update before applying.

I can get to the article describing the update easy enough, but if that article references a prior update, now I've got a problem!

If I select update history, I get a list of updates that are not sortable by their knowledge base number. This takes a long time to manually search this huge list, to see if I took the referenced update.

This is grossly inefficient. I need a better solution. Is there a directory that would list these? Are there tools available that would tie these together? Is there a website that can do this for me?

From the Update history click "Installed Updates" in the top. In that window you can do a search at the top right, but you need to start the search with kb. Example: kb3008923

If you remove kb and only search for the numbers it won't find anything. But searching for kb3 works.
I have no idea why it works this way, I've just noticed that it does.

That means that when I shutdown my computer, I'm going to have to wait for all the updates to be installed. How can I, instead, tell it to do...
