Windows 10 Update Assistant

Applies to: Windows 10

The Windows 10 Update Assistant downloads and installs feature updates on your device.  Feature updates (for example, the Windows 10 October 2018 update, version 1809) offer new functionality and help keep your systems secure. You’ll get these updates automatically after you download the Update Assistant.

If you don’t want to wait for an automatic update, or if you want to check for quality updates, you can update Windows 10 yourself.

If you’re an IT Professional, you can defer updates — go to Windows 10 servicing options.
