How to Download and Install the Windows 10 October 2018 Update

By Gabriela Vatu / October 3, 2018

The brand new Windows 10 October 2018 update is here and we're going to guide you through the updating process.

If you want to make sure your computer is safe and sound, you should always make sure to update your operating system. This, of course, applies to any of your devices, not just your computer.

Why not just go with the automated update, this October, though, right? Well, the thing is that Microsoft is pushing the brand new update in waves in order to collect info on potential bugs. Windows 10 users are a bit of a guinea pig this month because there was no Windows Insider ring used for testing, and Microsoft is pushing this update with confidence that it's good enough to install as is.

So, back to the update process - while the automatic rollout is going strong, it's being done in waves. This means that the update could hit you in a few weeks. But, that doesn't mean you can't get the update because that's possible quite easily. Allow us to guide you through it all.
