Configure Windows Update settings through registry

If you ever wondered which registry settings control Windows Update behavior, then here is the answer.
This key has values which control the Windows Update:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update

For example, AUOptions refers to this dropdown

If AUOptions value is set to 3, then Windows Update is configured to "Download updates but let me choose whether to install them"
