A new tutorial titled How to update Windows was added by Lawrence Abrams. Please use this topic to discuss any aspect of this tutorial.\n\nA brief excerpt of the tutorial can be found here:

When Windows, like any other operating system, is created there are bugs introduced into the software that could affect how the operating system runs. These bugs could cause Windows to not run reliably or could cause security vulnerabilities that would make Windows vulnerable to attacks. When these bugs are discovered, Microsoft creates updates to fix these issues and makes them available through the Windows Update utility. There is no set day that updates are released, except when it comes to security updates. Microsoft traditionally releases security updates for Windows on the second Tuesday of each month, which has become known as Patch Tuesday. In some cases, if a particular vulnerability is severe enough, Microsoft may release an update earlier in order to mitigate any issues that may be caused by this vulnerability. When Microsoft releases a security update ahead of schedule, this is called an out-of-band security update.

We hope you find this tutorial helpful.
