    Updating Question For New Laptop / But Older Version

    I bought a couple new laptops from HP back in Feb or March 2017. These are Windows 10 Pro 64.
    I've been using one of them since then, but the other laptop is still brand new in the box.
    I don't remember what version they came with, but will there be any kind of problems updating a new computer that's 6 or 7 months behind on updates, version, etc? Will it automatically update from 2 or 3 versions back? Is there a time limit on that kind of thing?
    Got to thinking about that and it's got me worried.
    Thanks for your help!

    Should not be a problem, especially with a new PC such as that one. It will update to the latest version, you will get several updates but won't have to incrementally update to get to the latest version.

    Thanks firebird. With W7 there was never any question, but with W10 I just didn't know if a past version might time out after a while and present an obstacle. Cool. Thanks again.
