Windows 10 Store

Windows 10 can automatically install app updates when they become available, but you can also check for updates manually. We'll show you in a quick how-to video. Some people like to check manually so they can see if there are any changes mentioned in the update. We're guilty of that because we report on app updates that readers might want to know about.

How to enable automatic app updates

  1. Open the Store
  2. Tap or click the user icon on top, next to the search form
  3. Tap or click Settings
  4. Toggle On Update apps automatically
