How can we improve the installation and patching of Windows Server?

Allow adding a shortcut for Windows Update UI on Server 2016

In Windows Server 2012 R2 or earlier you could create a shortcut to the Windows Update section of the control panel. In 2016 you can no longer (that I could find) do this. While most all of our updating/patching is automated sometimes and for a few servers we manually update.

Having this shortcut saves me from having to search for "windows update" every time I need to go to use it.

Can we add a method for creating a shortcut to put on the task bar or on the desktop to Windows Update? If it's already available how does one add it?
