How to download and install the June 2014 security updates

windows updates june 2014

The easiest option to download this month's updates is to use automatic updates. This is the default configuration of most Windows systems. It means that security updates get downloaded and installed automatically without user interaction (other than the annoying restart now prompt).

Even if the PC is configured to update automatically, you may want to check for updates manually as Windows does not do so in real-time.

The easiest option to do so is to tap on the Windows-key, type Windows Update, and select the result of the same name. Here you can click on the check for updates link to query a Microsoft server to find out if new updates are available for the operating system.

It is alternatively possible to download security patches from Microsoft's Download Center. Microsoft releases a security ISO image each month as well. We keep a list of all on this page.
