    I want to tell W10 Pro - to install updates


    I acquired a 64bit desktop PC yesterday (not new).
    It has a fresh install of W10 Pro 64bit (It was upgraded from a fresh W7 Pro install, 2 days ago).
    I like to control when things happen on my PC.
    I have managed to find the setting to prevent automatic install of Windows updates (it still can download when it feels like it).
    I am trying to find where I can tell it to do the install, and I cannot find any flipping thing.
    Control panel does not have "Updates & Security"
    It only has "Security and Maintenance", and I cannot find what I am looking for there.

    Could someone tell me where I can tell Windows - I am ready to install updates

    Help (W10 is killing me),
    Rob
    PS If someone writes a program that provides easy access to all the settings, or provides a better search than the one in Control panel (It returns nothing when you search for "Windows update"), I would pay $50 for it.

    Windows update has completely moved from the old control panel to the new settings app..

    You should be able to search there (or direct from start - just press and start typing). You do need to wait for indexing to complete before the search works but that should not take long and it will tell you if it isn't finished).

    When you go into Windows update from there you can check if it has anything to install, schedule a time and so on.

    You could have a look at the tutorials linked from this one Windows Update - Choose How Updates are Installed in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums perhaps.

    .
    I (who hates anything that I don't control), always turn off indexing.
    I intended to never use the Apps, but I followed your advice and went to Settings in there.
    A search for "update" returned nothing, however the main screen has a few categories, and one of them was "Update & Security", and in there I found Windows Update, which appears to be what I was looking for.

    Thank you for your assistance, much appreciated,
