When we install new windows on a computer, the computer has a lot of essential software and drivers that are not pre-installed. Windows Updates is a service in which Microsoft maintains Windows-related bugs and the necessary computer files.

Windows Update Benefits

The biggest advantage of Windows Update is that if there is any software glitch in your computer, Windows Update can easily solve your problem.

There are a lot of built-in drivers in Windows, but Computer Manufacturer offers some third-party drivers on the motherboard that are not built-in in Windows. So Windows Updates install the necessary drivers on your PC such as graphics, audio, chipsets, devices, and many of the drivers that the computer needs.

It is my own experience that the motherboard of my computer whose drivers I could not find on the manufacturer's website. So Windows Update automatically updated the drivers of my system to the latest version.

This saved me a lot of time searching for drivers and a lot of software that was outdated in my system and the drivers of the printers that were attached to my computer were also updated automatically.

The operating system and the devices that are attached to the computer, the drivers that are required to run, these updates help to keep these drivers up to date.
