How to Upgrade to the Latest Version of Windows 10

How to Upgrade to the Latest Version of Windows 10

If you're like me and are using an old-school desktop PC, you probably haven't been able to install Windows 11. You are still running Windows 10 if you are a business user with a workflow optimized for Windows. 10 or a leisure user who likes it. Motives aside, there are a lot of us. And, luckily, we now have an update available.

Windows 10 version 21H2 is now available for wider deployment according to Microsoft (first spotted by Neowin). If you are not an IT administrator, then the changes made in this update will not be of much interest to you. It's things like "GPU compute support for Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL)" and "Wi-Fi WPA 3-Personal H2E support". If you're an IT administrator, Microsoft has an article detailing the updates for you.

But, keeping your PC up to date is a good security practice in general, and even small updates often pave the way for bigger features. You'll need to update at some point anyway because Microsoft drops support for older versions of Windows 10 after a certain amount of time.

First, go to the Updates section of the Settings app. The fastest way to do this is to type "check for updates" in the search bar at the bottom of your screen. Check for Updates should appear in the start menu - click it.

You will be brought to a window where "Feature Update for Windows 10, Version 21H2" will appear as an optional download. Click on Download and Install.

For more information on the features in 21H2, you can also click on See what's in this update. This will take you to Microsoft's support website.
