App developers release their app updates regularly to add new functions or solve important bugs. How to get the app updates on a Windows 10 computer? Here are 2 ways to update apps or programs in Windows 10.

Method 1. Update Apps in Windows 10 from Windows Store

You could update apps from Windows Store. The Windows Store could be set to automatically update apps or programs in Windows 10. To do it, do the following:

Step 1. On the Start screen, select Store to open the Windows Store.

Step 2. Click the user icon on top, and then click Settings.

Step 3. Under App updates, toggle on Update apps automatically.

Note: Windows Store can only update those apps downloaded from Windows Store on your computer. Some programs downloaded from other sources can’t receive a prompt update.
