    Windows 10 Wont Update


    Hi,New to the Forum am reaching out with an issue with windows updating. so for a bit of back story, recently I noticed that windows updates was pending a restart so I attempted to do so. once my pc rebooted i noticed the same indicator was still present - so i attempted again; no luck. i decided to do some research and found a 'solution"the suggested method was going into C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution and deleted the most recent folders there, which would contain the updated files.

    Windows 10 wont update

    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
