    FVI Tech Corner - How to tell if Windows 10 Updates are running.

          Your computer seems to be running especially slow and you don't know why. You haven't done anything different than you normally do. If you have the Microsoft Windows 10 operating system, there is a good chance that Windows Update is running in the background.

          Microsoft puts out new updates every Tuesday, and sometimes additional updates on other days. Windows 10 updates run automatically and there is no easy way to turn them off, nor should you. Automatic updates will insure that your operating system is always running the most secure version of itself, and the most recent software drivers for your hardware. Updates also include improvements to the User Interface, as well as providing enhancements in general to the operating system. So our advice is to let it run. The question is, "How do I know if updates are running?". You can check if updates are running by clicking on the Start button in the lower left hand corner of your screen. It looks like the image below:

    StartIcon

    Then you will then need to click on Settings, which looks like a gear:
    SettingsIcon
    That will open the settings menu. Please select the "Update and Security" icon:
    UpdateIcon

    If Windows is updating, you will see that in the following window:

    UpdateProgress


          It will display "Downloading updates" and the percentage that is complete. Once you've determined that Windows updates is indeed running, please note that your computer will be running slower. Websites you attempt to access may not respond or will be slow to respond. Also any other devices on your network may experience slow internet service as a result of the update using a large amount, if not all of your bandwidth (or speed). Depending on the size of the updates and your current service level they can take anywhere from several minutes to several hours.
