Note: Please back up your system partition or entire device before you install Windows updates. Things may go wrong and a backup ensures that you can restore the previous version.
Windows users and admins have several ways to obtain updates and install these on supported devices.
The default option for Home users is to use Windows Update but there are also options to download updates individually from the Microsoft Update Catalog website or through the use of third-party tools like Windows Update MiniTool.
Windows Update checks for updates regularly and will download and install them automatically by default on most systems.
Do the following to run a manual update check:
Note: If you use Windows 10, checking for updates may find new feature updates for Windows 10.
