Why It Is Necessary to Update Windows 10
Do you need to install every Windows update? There is a simple answer – YES, you should install all updates that are available.
If you are asking why let’s talk about the importance of regular updating of your operating system. Despite the fact that most updates are not necessary for Windows to function, but they are very important to prevent hackers from exploiting bugs in Windows 10.
However, Windows 10 is designed to check for updates automatically every single day. Typically, Windows won’t find new ones.
On most computers, updates are installed automatically, mostly on Patch Tuesday (the second Tuesday of every month). This day, Microsoft rolls out updates that are designed to patch recent security holes in the system.
