How to see Windows 10 Installed Updates

This brief tutorial shows student and new users how to see Windows most recent updates which were installed on your computers.

Microsoft releases updates every month for your Windows computers. However, it’s not clear when each update was installed.

If you recently updated Windows and find out that your computer is not behaving normal, you can review the recent updates and remove the problem files that are causing your machine not to work.

To get started with reviewing Windows updates, follow the steps below:

Windows Settings

The quickest way to get to Windows settings pane is by clicking the small gear icon in the “Start” menu or by pressing Windows + i on your keyboard.

In Settings pane, click Update & Security.

Next, select Windows Update from the sidebar, then click View update history.

On the View update history page, you’ll see lists of installed updates sorted by category.

Category details:

  • Feature Updates: New versions of Windows 10
  • Quality Updates: Major updates to the Windows 10
  • Driver Updates: Drivers updates for your machines
  • Definition Updates: Microsoft Defender anti-malware definitions updates.
  • Other Updates: Miscellaneous updates

To expand each category, click on it.

Control Panel

You can also view recent updates by going to Windows control panel. To get to Windows control panel, click Start search for Control Panel.

Then navigate to Programs > Programs and Features and click “View installed updates.”

That should bring up a list of installed updates. You can quickly each any of the update and uninstall from there.

That should do it!
