Add options to 'Untag All' & 'Retag Apps to Install' to the Apps list to manage the list checkboxes.
Implementation complexity: Very simple.
Implementation duration: Very quick.
Why is this needed?
With slow downloads, I do not always have time to download all of the new updates immediately, but I do want to update specific updates that I am aware of. Eg: I may want to update 1 or 2 updates out of 20 available updates.
In this case, I am required to manually locate & untag each of the 20 apps before starting or use the Workaround shown below which is wasteful.
Who would benefit?
This would benefit those who have a slow download connection or anyone with reasons not to download or install, (after using Download Only Mode) all updates immediately.
How should it work?
Ideally, the pop-up menu for the Apps list could contain 2 new options:
Untag All (or Uncheck All or Clear All Checkboxes) - Action: uncheck every checkbox in the list.
Retag All / or Retag Apps to Install - Action: check the checkboxes of each outdated app in the list.
I realise there is an option to "Disable Auto Updating of All Apps", but that requires a restart with Admin permission granting to use, then the next time you use PatchMyPC it again requires you to re-enable "Enable Auto Updating of All Apps" with Admin permission granting to use it normally.
I require this feature very frequently, so this entire process becomes quite time consuming.
