Go to optional and uncheck Windows 10. Then go back to important and check the ones you want, and select install. It will say that it is downloading/installing Windows 10 but it really is not. It will just install the other updates you selected. When done, if you check available optional updates you will again see Windows 10 there, and checked. You can do this as many times as you need to install other updates, just be sure to uncheck the Windows 10 each time.

Below is link that provides you more information as well as how to remove the notification.  I have used the registry key on one machine and on another, I uninstalled KB3035583 and then hid the Windows 10 upgrade notification:
