Here's my problem: Windows 7 tells me it has updates, both important and optional. I always accept all the important updates, but I don't want to accept every optional update. So, I'd like to quickly see what's in each optional update.
However, the only way I know to see the contents of the optional updates is click the "More information" link in the right panel of the select updates window. This is clunky, because it opens a new web page for each update. I wish it would give the title or a brief summary right there in the window, so I could quickly go through the list and see which updates are potentially interesting. There's plenty of space in that panel, but it just fills it up with boilerplate text: "Install this update to resolve issues in Windows..."
Is there something I'm missing? Is there a better way quickly see descriptive titles or summaries of the optional updates in the "Select the updates you wish to install" window?
