my system run for a little while. The fact that we changed our update settings over here caused Windows Update to go out and look for additional updates for Microsoft Products. Notice that it says down here that we now receive updates for Windows and other products, from Microsoft Update, as a result of the change that we made. In doing that process it also downloaded many additional updates, and I just let it run so it can start the installation process. Most of the updates are now installed, but as noted here, I need to restart the system before I can finish installing all of those updates, and there were quite a few. View Update History 5:48-6:12 Before we do that I want to point out that you can come over here to view update history, on the left,and you can see, which updates have been installed on your system. You can see I have a whole bunch of updates whose status is "pending restart." On very, very rare occasions you may run into situations where you need to remove an update that's already been installed. It doesn't happen very often, but it does happen. Uninstalling Updates 6:13-6:41 If this happens to you, you can come up here to installed updates, and notice when we do, it takes us to Programs and Features within Control Panel. A list of all the installed updates is displayed. If one of these updates is causing a problem, you can mark it, and then click uninstall. Go ahead and click OK.We'll click restart now to finalize the installation of updates on this system. Updates on Windows 10 6:42-11:19 Before we end this demonstration I want to show you how to manage updates on Windows 10because it's slightly different. The process for managing updates on Windows 8 and Windows 7 is pretty much identical, but on Windows 10 things have changed. If we go down here and launch Control Panel, and go to System and Security, you'll notice that something very important is missing.Windows Update is gone. It's not here anymore. You no longer manage updates in Control Panel.Let's go ahead and close Control Panel. To manage updates on a Windows 10 system, you need to come down to your Windows icon. Click on Settings. Under Settings, we come down here to Update and Security. Lo and behold there is our Windows Update option. You'll notice here that it tells us that several updates are currently available.Let's make this window a little bigger so we see what we're doing. We have three updates that are ready to be installed on this system. We can click Details to view more information about the status of each of these updates. You can see that we have two that are waiting to be downloaded. Another one already has been downloaded, and has actually been installed, but we've got to restart the system in order to finalize the installation. Notice that if you hover over one of these updates a description of the update is displayed in a pop-up window. Notice down here that a restart has been scheduled. That's to finalize the installation of this update right here.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
