Why you need to update Windows 10
Windows 10 keeps playing a key role in how we learn, work, and live during these modern times, and Microsoft as a company ensures high quality and reliable products. To make sure that the user maintains a reliable, productive experience on Windows 10, Microsoft has been rolling out a continuous stream of updates for its customers. Being on the latest version of Windows 10 provides you with the latest security improvements and features. Major refreshes to the operating system are planned to release every 6 months, the latest version being October 2020 Update.
Updating the software on your system is an easy and effective method to make sure your desktop, laptop, or Windows tablet runs smoothly. Updating Windows 10 gives the user all the latest features, drivers, and security software patches. Windows 10 periodically checks for the latest updates and installs them autonomously, requiring you to restart the computer for the big patches and feature updates. There are times where you’ll need to manually check for updates, like security patches, and Windows glitches.
In Windows, you pick when and how you receive the latest updates to keep your device performing as it should. To change the settings, navigate to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and change the settings accordingly – you can pause the updates for up to 35 days.
The new Windows updates that came out rectified nagging problems in the PCs ecosystem. For example, every user can choose which updates they would like and not have to download the unnecessary ones – Microsoft argued that these untested variations made effective quality assurance too difficult and have thus removed most of the features that were available natively in operating systems such as Windows 7.
How to update Windows 10
Select Start and go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Check for updates.
Open up a command prompt as administrator and type in “wuauclt.exe /updatenow” command. This forces the PC to check for the latest updates.
