How to download and save updates for future

Dear Friends,

I have Windows 7 Home Basic 64 bit on my PC and laptop both purchased in 2012 and 2013 respectively. Both are legal copies of Windows OS. Now that Windows 7 will longer be supported officially from Jan 2020, how can I download and save updates for both of my devices ie laptop and PC, so that if I happen to re-install Windows 7 after the official support ends, I can easily install the updates. Is that possible? Thanks a lot.

Download Simplix update pack.

There is new one every month, so unless you're planning on reinstalling right now, download the pack in January.

Piece of cake.

Thanks for the reply. If I re-install Windows 7 in Feb 2020 or later (any time after the end of support ie Jan 2020), will this "Simplix update pack" still help me install updates? Thanks.

Yes! Just use the latest SIMPLIX pack available [January 2020].

I hope this helps!

Knowing M$, they could always release a further update[s] for whatever reason!
If this did happen, I assume that it would get included in a revised/updated SIMPLIX pack!
