Looking to update Windows 10 manually where can I find the Windows Update page?
From the Windows home screen click on the Windows icon in the bottom left hand corner and then the Settings icon a little above.
This view shows the main Windows Settings page. The section of interest is Update & Security, at the bottom. Click on it.
On the left is a menu of options, including our item of interest, Windows Update, listed at the top. If Windows Update isn’t showing select it from this menu.
Highlighted with a grey background is the manual trigger for the Windows Updates. Click on this to begin a manual check of available updates.
The page changes to show the update status. Initially a check is made for available updates.
Accessing the Control Panel in Windows 10 is one of those of course how obvious moments.
I found that the main control panel home page in Windows 10 was access by simply right clicking on the Windows logo at the bottom left hand corner of the screen.
Right click on the Windows logo to show a menu of admin related options.
The control panel is listed here amongst the other admin actions.
In Windows 10 the Services control panel is to be found grouped on the Task Manager.
To access the services list begin by opening the Task Manager – right click on the Windows icon in the bottom left of the screen
Clicking on Task Manager from this list opens the grouped Task Manager control panel.
Onto this panel has been grouped a number of the previously discrete individual views including the Services control panel.
Click on the last tab to show the Services.
Taking a screenshot of the display on a computer can be a great way to convey the configuration settings or an error message.
Preparing the article Install IIS on Windows 10 I was interested in taking screenshots of my progress through the various screens.
I looked at using the pnt scr key.The choices associated with this option are more limited. Having taken the screenshot it requires a document to paste into. I wished to be able to do a simple save to a jpg file. Further, its a simple screen capture, rather than the capture of a selected window or a rectangular area of the window.
I chose to use the Snipping tool.
To start this I began typing the word snipping in the search box at the bottom left of the screen until the word snipping was presented as an option.
Using the snipping tool I found it convenient to select the New>Window option. I was then able to select from the open windows and click on capture.
Having captured the window, with a trigger delay if it helps, I saved the file for use.
The saved file is of a quality and file size greater than will be required on a website. A smaller file size is downloaded quicker making the page load faster giving happier website visitors and better search engine results.
I used the Gimp to edit my images, reducing the saved image quality. If I had more images to adjust them a program such as XnConvert may have been more appropriate.
Screenshots on Windows 10 continue to support the use of the prt scr key.
