How to download and install the July 2017 security updates

windows updates july 2017

Windows PCs are configured by default to search for, download and install updates automatically. This is not a real-time action, and if time is of the essence, you may run a manual check for updates at any time.

  1. Tap on the Windows-key, type Windows Update, and hit the Enter-key.
  2. Depending on how Windows Update is configured, you either need to click on the “check for updates” button, or that happens automatically.
  3. Again, depending on the configuration, Windows may download and install these updates automatically when found, or on user request.
