    If you are referring to Windows updates then follow the steps and check.

    Run the Update Troubleshooter on the computer.

    Windows 10 has a built-in troubleshooter to check and fix issues with Update. I would suggest you to run this troubleshooter to check if the issue is with your Windows update.

    • Press Windows key +X, select Control panel.
    • Change the view by option on the top right to Large icons.
    • Click on Troubleshooting and click on the view all option on the left panel.

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Windows 10 Update stalled

    Windows Update on my Windows 10 system has been stalled for approximately one week. There is a long list of updates ready to install, but the last one - for Adobe Flash Player - is waiting to download. I have run the Windows Update troubleshooter but
    no problem is indicated. Is there any way I can remove this item from the update list so that the others will install?
