first of all you I assume that you have synchronized with the update server and there are new updates which needed to approve ( to go through the synchronization process just go check my one of previous posts
open WSUS with privileged user account
go to updates.
you can see updates are categorized. for ease your process just select all the updates
now navigate to updates section in the right side and select unapproved from the approval drop down list and any from the status drop down list and click on refresh ( above showed ). It will show all the updates which are not approved to install in WSUS.
soon after you click on you will get a list of unapproved updates from the WSUS ( below showed )
you can see that they are not approved, likewise you can see the approved updates from here also
now right click on a update and select approve from the popup menu or select an update and go to action menu and select approve.
if you want to select all the updates to approve just use Ctrl+A as usual and repeat above step
then after you can approve the updates to each group ( as you prefer ) in here I have only one group called lab 1 and unassigned group you can approve updates manually to each group or for all groups
as showed in above I have clicked the all computers group and approved to install after you approved it will show a progress bar ( depend on number of updates that you are approving it will take a little while to approve )
after approved ( showed below)
like wise you can approve updates after you synchronized. in here there are more options like set deadline, unapproved, approved to remove. we will discuss these things in future with some posts
