Updating computer program
You can download Service Packs for Windows manually or automatically through your operating system settings.The process for this will be slightly different, depending on which version of the Windows operating system you’re using.Microsoft offered a free upgrade from Windows 7 or 8 to Windows 10 up to July 29, 2016.Those looking to upgrade now will not get the free upgrade option.For enterprises, especially, this kind of work disruption on a large scale is extremely expensive, even when the update is free.
Android users can turn app updates on or off through the Google Play Store settings.
Unfortunately, there’s no “one way” to perform security updates.
How a software developer chooses to make updates available will change, depending on which developer or company made the software.
Keep in mind that Service Packs are not delivered on a regular basis, and many of Microsoft’s operating systems only receive one or two Service Packs during their support cycle.
Do not rely on Service Packs to receive regular security updates.
You can search for security updates for your specific system by clicking on the right-hand search box and typing in the appropriate operating system.
