Your University managed laptop: does it need to be updated? 

We need to ensure that all University managed laptops and desktops are running an up-to-date version of Windows 10.  Here you will find out how to check which version your laptop is running, and how to install the latest update. 

How do I check what version my managed laptop is running?

  • ​Go to the Search bar at the bottom left of your desktop and enter "about your PC".  Click About your PC and the Settings will open:

  • From the "About" Settings screen scroll down to Windows specifications and look at the number next to Version - if the version is 1909 then you will need to update your laptop. 

How do I update my laptop?

You can install the update from your laptop’s Software Center - it will take up to one hour.  Before you update your laptop you must close any open applications. 

To update your laptop:
  • Open the Software Center by clicking on the desktop icon:
