WU shows update for Windows only. How to change?

I am in the process of setting up a new laptop. With the help and advice from many members here I have successfully stopped WU from doing anything with W10. Thank you very much !

I noticed that it states I am set to receive updates for Windows only. How do I change it for other products as well? I am sure I'm missing something simple.
