It is quite easy to update Windows 10 to have it up to date with security fixes, improvements, and new features, so you can enjoy a secure operating system, with the latest available features and free of errors that run with the updates.
In any case, Microsoft releases almost weekly some kind of patch with some improvement or bug fix and security so that Windows 10 works perfectly, but it doesn’t always succeed, but that’s what it’s really about.
Having Windows 10 updated will ensure you have a safe system and the latest news , if you add to that the fact that you should have automatic updates activated so that they install themselves and an antivirus for the system , nothing should prevent you from working without problems.
Two types of updates
We could make a difference in the types of updates that Windows 10 receives , the periodic ones that come to be patches that correct some vulnerability, repair errors, improve some details and others, and on the other hand, the updates with great news.
Windows 10 October 2020 Update would be within the last type, it is a “major” update that brings great news , not only at the design level, but also with new features. These are available 2 or 3 times a year, unlike what happens with the “minor” updates that arrive almost every week.
If you think that Windows 10 is not up to date, you can easily check it, and by the way you can update it if it is so:
- Press the Windows + Q keys and in the search box type “Windows Update”, enter the “check for updates” option .
- Once inside, click on “check for updates” again, but you will know that your Windows 10 is up to date with new features and so on if the message “Everything is up to date” appears. In any, the update you find install it.
- Finally, wait for the pending to be installed, probably then even the PC will ask you to restart to be able to install everything correctly and without errors.
There is another method that even allows you to update Windows 10 to a new version in case it was available before that possibility appears in Windows Update, but it is recommended to use this tool to have the most up-to-date system possible.
