PCs that run Windows are configured by default to search for, download, and install security updates automatically.
The check does not happen in real-time though, and you may run a manual check to have the updates for devices picked up as quickly as possible.
Note: it is suggested that you create a backup of your system before you install any update on it.
To run a manual check for updates, do the following:
Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP
Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2
Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 (version 1703)
