Perform all windows updates automatically

Hello, when I stage a new system I like to get all windows updates up to date first.  Is there a way to set the system up to automatically do this so that it goes through multiple iterations of updates?

If you go to Windows Updates in the control panel, you can select exactly that option. The PC will just need to be rebooted a couple of time.

Besides that I can recommend using the offline WSUS utility. With it you can download the updates for your OS's beforehand, and then run the client utility on the workstations to do the updates automatically and offline. This saves time, but it won't work with all updates, so once that is finished you should finish up by manually doing the rest of the updates:

Yes. Remember that if you are using Office 2013 or 2016 click to run that those updates must be done separately.  Otherwise, as noted, just set updates to automatic.

I purchased a Windows 10 box new December 18 and it was still Build 10240 and had to be updated (2 or 3 hours). So "new" boxes may be a long way behind.

You need System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) task sequence to automate this or something similar.

MIcrosoft Deployment Tool workbench is also an option.

I was not as clear as I should have been in my description.  I want:
a. to get windows up to date within one day (one day frequency is not enough)
b. to have reboot function automatically, so the next set of updates process.  Essentially, look for updates, download updates, install updates reboot, go again until no updates.
c. I don't want to use a WSUS server as some of my clients don't have the capacity and it may not make sense....
d. It would be great if this also applied to all other MS product such as Office, etc..
e. I want to be able to do this without a domain...

Any more thoughts?
All a-e match what I have linked. It does not need a wsus.

So was this wrong in your link?

"Prerequisites: Setup your WSUS server and tell the clients about it."
The tool wuinstall works with internet based updating, too. The tutorial assumed wsus, but you can use the same steps without wsus.
