How To Manually Update Windows 10

Normally, your windows 10 is set to automatically update in the background. This is because the functionality and effectiveness of the windows 10 are greatly affected by the apps and tools on the PC or laptop. This makes it necessary for the updates to coolly occur in the background. However, if you really want to be in charge of how it updates, you can learn how to manually update windows 10 by yourself.

Just like we have already pointed out above, Windows 10 typically updates itself in the background during inactive hours, but there are situations demanding your immediate attention. Each manufacturer has its own set of updates you need to keep current that are separate from Windows 10. These updates typically include Bluetooth, storage, touchpad, audio, Wi-Fi and other necessary drivers provided through special desktop programs installed by manufacturers. These programs are typically shown on the taskbar and/or listed on the Start Menu.
