Updates

Automatic updates are a pain in the butt.  Is it possible to manually install updates when they become available?  Waiting to meaningfully use my laptop while updates are downloaded and installed is a waste of time!

Hi @ken_c1!

Good question!

Automatic Updates are important to ensure that your program is well-armed and optimized in protecting your devices. It secures that your program has important product updates, critical patches & bug fixes, and the latest virus signatures/definitions.

@tm_kree​ Yes, but is it possible to update manually rather than wait for automatic updates to load???

@ken_c1 the manual update and automatic updates serve different functions. Manual updates are user-triggered and prone to be forgotten or missed. Automatic updates will make sure that the product is updated all the time, around the clock.

Right click the icon down by the clock and select check for program updates.

@davevt31​ thanks, Dave.  I hope if I diligently update myself I can avoid endless automatic updates.
