October – I.T. Help – Windows Update

If your computer is running slow or its taking a long time to ‘turn on’ or just not running right.

For example: Mouse was working but not now.

1 – Restart your computer

2 – Consider doing a ‘Windows Update”. (Internet access required)

(Hint: if you have a tablet or laptop, keep it ‘open’ see the system working and try to not let it go into sleep mode.)

Windows 10 instructions:

“Some updates may not be available on all devices at the same time—we’re making sure updates are ready and compatible.” Microsoft

To stay up to date, select the Start  button > Settings > Update & Security  > Windows Update , and then select Check for updates.

Windows 8 instructions:

Open Windows Update by swiping in from the right edge of the screen (or, if you’re using a mouse, pointing to the lower-right corner of the screen and moving the mouse pointer up), select Settings  > Change PC settings > Update and recovery > Windows Update. To check for updates manually, select Check now.

A Message for Beginner Users:

It is very important to keep your Windows operating system up to date.  If you perform windows update regularly, the entire process should not take more than 20 to 30 min.  It may be as fast as 1 to 5 min.

If this is the first time in a long while, it make take one to two hours depending on how many updates it needs to download.

A Message for Advance and Intermediate Users:

If you manually update your computer(regularly), it will not do it automatically when you least expect it (ie: in the middle of your presentation or when you need it the most).
