Currently some of the computers I support do not have the "“Show a reminder when the computer needs to be restarted” option enabled. By default, it appears that it is set to off .
Can you please create a script that enables both? I found the registry key for the first one “Show a reminder when the computer needs to be restarted” - “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX\Settings” the DWORD value is ‘RestartNotificationsAllowed’ which needs to be set to 1 for enabled.
Thank you in advance.
Is there also a way to have the “give me updates for other MS products when I update Windows” option set to on?

Preethi, Thank you for the quick reply. The “Give me updates for other MS products when I update windows” works perfectly. However the “We’ll show a reminder when we’re going to restart. If you want to see more notifications about restarting, turn this on” is still off. This registry key “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX\Settings” DWORD value RestartNotificationsAllowed never got set to 1. Any change that this could be updated?
We have forwarded your request to our Script Developers. We’ll post an update soon.

Not need to apologize. What I found with the new script (thank you by the way) is that is shows “started” in the procedure log. I ran the command “REG ADD “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX\Settings” /v RestartNotificationsAllowed /t REG_DWORD /d 1” from the command prompt and it asked me if I wanted to “overwrite”. Can you change the new “20180817-Show-a-remainder-to-a-restart-option.json” so that it tells the command prompt ‘yes’ to overwrite? Once I told it yes to overwrite it worked.
I am attaching what I am talking about.

@Jimmy - That was the first thing I do and did. I have tried on 3 different browsers, did a save as on Chrome and IE and still nothing.
I was finally able to download it and confirm it works. Thanks.
