Updating the software on your laptop is an easy and effective way to make sure your system runs smoothly. When you update Windows 10, your PC will have the latest features, bug fixes, and, most important, security patches.
How to Manually Update Windows 10
1. Select the Start (Windows) button from the bottom-left corner.
2. Go to settings (gear icon).
3. Select the Update and Security icon
4. Choose Windows Update tab in the sidebar (Circular arrows)
5. Select Check for updates. If there is an available update, it will begin downloading automatically.
If you don’t see an update, don’t worry, this page will tell you if your hardware is currently incompatible. You may see this message: “The Windows ** ** 2020 Update is on its way. We’re offering this update to compatible devices, but your device isn’t ready for it. Once your device is ready, you’ll see the update available on this page. There’s nothing you need to do at this time.”
If there’s a more convenient time to restart your laptop, Windows 10 will let you reschedule. Doing so is pretty straightforward — just follow these simple instructions. (Note, your system will not have the latest updates until it’s been restarted.)
