Unfortunately, Windows 10 isn’t automatically updated when your computer isn’t connected to the UT network on Campus. This can lead to unsecured workstations and are potentially the target of cyber-attacks. It is very important to run Windows updates manually at least once a week.
To start this process manually, you’ll need to follow the manual below.
Before you get started
- This manual uses a consistent style of writing: references to text and buttons on screens are printed in italics, information that you have to enter yourself is printed in bold.
- Make sure your power adapter is plugged in while downloading and installing updates. Downloading updates over Wi-Fi is possible, but a wired connection is preferred.
- Click on the search button (the magnifier) and type Updates.
- Select Check for updates.
- Click on Check online for updates from Microsoft Update.
Note: When you click on Check for updates, you will get an error message. To resolve this, connect with VPN and retry.
- Windows is now downloading and installing updates. You will receive a notification when you need to restart your computer to finish the installation.
Note: Windows might be installing driver updates. During the installation, your computer might slow down or your screen might turn off for a few seconds.
