    windows 10 pro x64 fall creators update

    "check for updates" is a dead link


    when I click on search and type "check for updates", or "windows updates settings", I can't open the result. I click, and nothing happens.
    But if I go to "settings", and then to "update and security", it opens just fine.
    What is the matter with "check for updates", and "windows updates settings"?

    Think you have to type in as I did
    Check for Windows 10 updates
    It will then work
    But I always use
    Settings
    Update and Security

    Hello shmu26,

    If you like, here's a Windows Update shortcut that you can use to make it easier to "Check for updates" as you like.

    How I did was nearly like yours Brink
    But clicked on Settings
    Then Update and Security
    Then Right Click Windows Update
    Asked me was I sure I wanted a short cut
    Clicked YES
    Resized it
    Then Pined it to Start

    How about in the search box, just simply type windows update > press Enter.
    Will Windows Update open up ?

    Shmu26, what version of Windows 10 you are running, 10240 or 10586.nn?
    You can check that by right click on the Start Menu, then select Run and type in winver.

    I am running Windows 10 10586.71 the search returns result in Setting and when I click on the Setting selection, it opens fine!
    Have you add any 'System Utility Program' to your environment?
