Update Manager for Windows Reviews

This is a great Windows Update manager/installer which I've been using for quite some time now (first as stand-alone, then as part of Sledgehammer), giving the update control back to the user after having been stolen by Microsoft with its uncalled for forced changes in Windows 10.

Two downsides, however:

  1. Lack of feature documentation (most of it is self-explanatory, but definitely not all)
  2. The UI; I think it's too compact, and would prefer it to remember window size and column widths between runs, and it could do with some usability improvements (e.g. the link you can click to open the Microsoft KB article for the currently selected item; I think it should be more prominent, perhaps displayed in a dedicated column in the list, one link per item).

By the way, I think it's well worth supporting the developer on Patreon.
