    How to Check for and Install Windows Updates in Windows 10

    information   Information
    Microsoft has made it easier for Windows Update to keep Windows 10 updated by automatically downloading and installing the latest features and improvements, drivers, and hotfixes released by Microsoft—and with fewer interruptions and restarts when you're using your PC the most. The latest updates will automatically download and install when they’re available. (Unless you’re on a metered connection, then updates won’t download until you manually check for updates.)

    Microsoft releases important updates every second Tuesday once a month, known as Patch Tuesday. However, updates could be released at any time.

    Windows 10 will automatically check for new Windows Updates at the time you have set in automatic maintenance.

    You can select to also receive updates for other Microsoft products like Office in Windows Update.

    Occasionally, your PC may need to restart to finish installing the updates. You can set active hours to let Windows know when you're usually using your PC to help prevent inconvenient restarts. When a restart is scheduled, you can use a custom restart time to temporarily override active hours and schedule a custom time to finish installing the current update(s).
