moderated Re: Windows 10 question


 

Hi,
It is enabled by default. There is a way to find out, which will involve
opening a list of Windows services and seeing if Windows Update service is
active. But for everyday consumers, don't worry about automatic updates.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi,
The fastest way to find out what Windows 10 release you are using is: Start
menu, type "winver" (without quotes) and press Enter. Listen to the line
that starts with "Version".
As for automatic updates: yes, it is advised to keep this enabled. In the
past, people gave conflicting advice in regards to keeping automatic updates
on or off, mainly because of concern that you may find yourself upgraded to
more recent Windows 10 release (termed "feature updates"). Times have
changed since then - Microsoft will not install new Windows 10 feature
updates (releases) unless your system (hardware and software) is deemed
compatible with the new update.
Although the following will not directly address automatic updates question
posed, it provides a short overview on what is happening with feature
updates
