Allow Update settings recently removed. Nobody wants these surprise updates, and nobody needs a shortcut placed on their desktop.
How simple it would be, as most programs offer, as Skype used to, to have a setting for updating preference, eh?
The more Microsoft controls user experience and constantly jacks around with updates and interface, the more Google and Apple are empowered.
Also, the adding of the shortcut overwrites previously existing one and removes the custom settings for it (I usually have a shortcut with "--secondary" parameter) and on every update I have to change it. Frustrating !
