Manually Check and Install Windows Updates

Microsoft regularly pushes Windows updates to all Windows computers. However, you can fast track a scheduled update manually.

Windows 10

To manually install Microsoft Windows updates:

  1. Next to Start button, click magnifying glass. Search for "windows update" & click Check for updates.
  2. If there are updates available, click Install now. (You may need to scroll down to see the button.)
    Important: If you see any issues/errors/failures displayed, please contact your TC or the Help Center (617-552-4357) for assistance.
  3. After the updates have installed, when prompted, restart your computer.

If Windows Update says your device is up to date, you have all the updates that are currently available.
