Automatic updating security computer windows Live grannychat
Thanks to our reader "Martin" who contacted us and shared the fact that Microsoft has released a new update for Windows 8 operating system which allows automatic upgrade to Windows 8.1.
Once this update is installed, the Windows 8 computer is automatically updated to Windows 8.1 OS.
Windows Update is set to automatically download and install updates by default.
I advise checking the options in the screen shown here.The difference is that Microsoft Update goes beyond just Windows, to update other Microsoft software you might have, like Microsoft Office.That being said, I also feel that certain aspects can be tweaked for power users like myself.Microsoft releases regular updates on a monthly schedule.Manually finding and installing them, however, would be a big chore, which is why Microsoft includes Windows Update as part of the OS.
