As part of Microsoft company to consistently upgrade Windows OS to fix bugs, security features, and make the OS the best operating system, Microsoft has rolled out new Windows 10 update in some region automatically to upgrade to their Windows OS and enjoy the new bug fixed and security features.

However, if you are tempted by the new bug fixed and the security feature in the new Windows 10 update features, you can have your way around to check whether you can manually update to the latest version or you should wait for the update to come to your region.
They are three ways to get the latest and new Windows 10 April update. The updates can be rolled out to your automatically, you can check for Windows update manually, and you can update your Windows using Windows 10 update tool.

How to Check for Windows 10 Update Manually
Occasionally, you need to do this if the updates notification failed to show up. The manual check revealed whether there is an update available in your region or not. However, in most cases, disabling Windows automatic update will require you to check for Windows update manually.
To check for Windows 10 update manually click on the “Start” button and click on “settings” click on “Update & Security”, click on “Windows Update” and click on “Check for Update”.
The check for update option will reveal whether your Windows is running on the latest Windows 10 version or not. If the result says your device is up to date then the latest update has either installed automatically or the current month update is not yet rolled out in your region.
How to Update Windows 10 Automatically
Updating Windows 10 automatically does not require your manual check whether an update is available or not. When your Windows 8 or 10 OS device is set to update automatically, it will popup a notification message that an update is available.
Further, if the settings say update automatically, your system will download the new update and install it automatically without any human assistance. But, if the settings say, ask before install updates, then, a notification will pop up asking whether to install the new Windows update or not.
To set Windows 8 & 10 to automatic update simply follow the direction below…
Right click on “Start” for Windows 8 and click on “Start” button for Windows 10, click on “Control Panel”, click on “System & Security” and then click on “Turn automatic updating On or Off”.
Under the “Important updates” option click on the drop menu and select “Install Updates Automatically (Recommended)” and then click on “OK”
With this option, updates will be downloaded and installed during the maintenance windows. Most especially, it comes when you want to shut down your computer. So, even an update has been downloaded you do not need to shut down to install the update. Just wait until you are done with what you are done and the update will begin when you want to shut down with an option to either update and shut down or update and restart your PC.
How to Check for Windows 10 Update with an Updating Tool
Media creation tool is the best Windows update tool to download the latest ISO file to create a bootable USB stick to run the latest update on your computer. However, it is much convenience to burn the latest ISO file downloaded with the media creation tool into a DVD popularly called disc if you have more than one Windows to upgrade.
This Windows update tool falls short in the area of Windows monthly update. Each month Windows roll out a new update, just like the April Windows update, then you have to use the update tool to download the latest ISO file every month to either create a bootable USB stick or burn it to a DVD to run your Windows update.
