    Windows 10 wont update?


    Hi Guys, So I haven't been on my leonovo Microsoft programmed laptop for about 2 months. Now I have come back to it, it will only let me access the internet, word and powerpoint. I cant access my apps or photos which is very annoying! When I click on the windows button in the bottom left corner it says 'update pending, waiting to install' so when I click on , it takes me to the windows 10 update page. When I try to run the update it says its unavailable and it can't update? Help please. if you have no clue about what I'm going on about, I can send some screenshots. thanks.

    :)

    Have you tried the second step?

    (Searching for the error message e.g.

    windows update database corrupt

    is also a useful approach- e.g. finds
    Win 10 Update Database Corruption Solved - Windows 10 Forums
    - where the next step is the one I suggested above).

    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

    If you having an issue installing a driver that worked before you formatted or wont install on a fresh build, sometimes this means hardware damage
