Welcome to our Windows 10 tutorial series.
We will be spending time walking you through the ins and outs of Windows 10.
Here’s a look at how easy it is to install and deploy updates for your OS.
You can find Windows Update in both Settings and Control Panel on your Windows 10 device.
The former option allows you to check for new updates manually, install the ones that are available, view your update history and choose how updates get installed. The more traditional Control Panel screen offers greater customization of how Windows Update works.
Microsoft releases several types of updates on a regular basis, including:
- Security updates, intended to protect computers from newly discovered security vulnerabilities.
- Critical updates that usually aren’t security related, but solver reliability or data integrity issues.
- Windows Defender definitions are also delivered here, to detect and protect against malware.
- Service packs contain dozens or even hundreds of small updates all rolled into one.
If you have selected the default settings to automatically install updates when you set up Windows in previous versions, these patches and definition updates are deployed routinely.
The preview builds of Windows 10, of course, do not come with options to disable updates.
You will either be notified when new updates are available, or you can manually check for them via the screen above and initiate the download.
It is a good idea to install all updates as soon as possible to keep your Windows 10 PC secure and running smoothly without any performance or reliability issues.
