Updating windows update

If you enable this, you’ll still receive security updates automatically.

But, either way, those updates will be automatically downloaded and installed.

To speed up updating, Windows now uses peer-to-peer downloads for updates.

To prevent Windows from downloading updates on a specific connection, first connect to that WI-Fi network.

Next, open the WI-Fi settings panel and select “Network settings,” or open the Settings app and select “Network & Internet.” Scroll down in the list of Wi-Fi networks and select “Advanced options.” Activate the “Set as metered connection” option here.

Many of the included applications on Windows 10 — the Microsoft Edge browser and all those other “universal apps” — will be automatically updated through the Windows Store, which is separate from Windows Update.

Windows 8 offered dual interfaces for Windows Update — one in the PC Settings app, and one in the older Control Panel.

Instead, updates for Office will be installed automatically for you within a few days after these updates get released.

You can also force it to check for new updates and apply them by using the Update Options button.

By default Windows Update only updates Windows itself.
