    Windows Update App no longer available?


    I no longer have a Windows update app to check for updates as I typically do. When I type in 'Windows Update' in the Search the web and Windows, the App always popped up for me to select it to check updates. It is no longer there? Using Windows 10 Pro 64bit, desktop, fresh install I did about a month ago.

    Right, it is no longer there.

    You now find that functionality in the Settings app > Update and Security > Windows Update.

    See, I'm sorry but if that had been me, and I had put all of that effort in, only to find out what Brink told you, I'd be having a Coronary right now. But that's just me. I am glad you're happy.
