Download Windows ( 7/8/10) Updates Separately and Save it Separately

Whether  Downloading different OS updates sequentially using WSUS is possible?

Query: Set WSUS for “Win 7” updates, Approve and download. Move the download updates to another folder. Change the setting to “Win 10” updates, approve and download

In native WSUS that's not possible. You can have only 1 content store in WSUS. Example - You have downloaded Windows 7 updates and  If you move the content store to different location, then the actual content store doesn't have the files, WSUS will re-download it.

Important to note is that the downloaded files are .cab format which means that you can install it manually like how we run setup.exe.

If I understand your question correctly, offline WSUS might provide you with the desired functionality

Even though this is moot, WSUS will *NOT* re-download anything unless you were to run the Wsusutil.exe reset.
