NOTE: Microsoft has apparently removed the ability to update drivers manually via the Device Manager, which is why, no matter the device/driver, it will always say the "best" is already installed. The "update driver" button effectively does nothing. I think their goal was to minimize the chance of malicious drivers being installed, but that obviously screws people who are actually attempting a legitimate install.

I have tried the catalog method for windows 8 updates, but:
– clicking the item in the pop-up does not activate transfer or there is no visual feedback
– right-clicking > "save link as" works until the download is blocked by Chrome
BTW, I'm trying to download via windows 7 laptop, maybe it matters?

I was thinking about saving all updates necessary identified by WindowsUpdate (I have saved the list) in order to avoid having to download them once again (3rd time) if I have to reinstall the OS. Is there a downside to this? I have read somewhere that via the WindowsUpdate the files are different than the same files on the catalog (same code) because they are more fitted to the system status. I doubt this because the size seems to be the same except decimals.
