Win10/11 - How to update your device

Modified on Fri, 05 Apr 2024 at 01:13 PM

Sometimes, your device may require updates. It is important to download and install these so that your device has any potential issues fixed and keeps it secure.

1. Select the Start (Windows) button from the bottom-left corner.

2. Go to settings (gear icon) OR type "Check for Updates" and go to step 4.

3. Select the Update & Security icon.

4. Choose the Windows Update tab in the left sidebar (circular arrows)

5. Click the Check for updates button. If there is an available update, it will begin downloading automatically.


6. If your device states "Optional Updates" below on this screen, select this and tick all the optional updates that it allows you to. Then select install. Optional Updates can also be found in the "Advanced Options"

If you don't see an update, don't worry; your device is already up to date.

To finish the update, you'll need to restart Windows, but you can do this later if there's no urgency.
