Windows Update is a service provided by Microsoft that gives users the latest patches and security updates for their operating system. These updates can help improve the stability and security of your computer, and they can also help improve its performance. However, if you have a lot of pending updates, it can take up a lot of space on your hard drive and slow down your computer. In this case, you may want to clear the pending updates to free up some space and speed up your computer.

If you want to check for updates manually, select Start >Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update , and then select Check for updates.
If update is available, you’ll be prompted to install it. If several updates are available, you’ll see a list of them. You can choose which ones to install and which ones to save for later.
