Re: Settings to Get updates for other Microsoft products on Windows 7

If you are using Microsoft products with Windows, you need not get the updates individually separate product. Windows Update actually comes with a built-in feature for updates to install MS products. This makes it much easier for you to get the updates in the background and install it on your list. These updates are under an optional upgrade that can be seen in Windows Update. Follow the steps to enable it :

Type Windows Update in Windows 7, click the Start Search box on the menu item that says "Windows Update"

Now in the left pane, click Change settings

Now find an item labeled Microsoft Updates: Dame updates for Microsoft products and verify the new optional software Microsoft when Windows Update.

You can configure Windows to automatically install important and recommended updates and install important updates only. Significant updates offers major benefits such as superior security and reliability. Recommended updates can address non-critical problems and facilitate to advance your computing experience. Optional updates are not downloaded or installed automatically. If you do not wish for the updates are installed routinely, you can opt to be notified when updates are applied to your computer as a substitute. You would be able to download and install it manually, or you can configure Windows to automatically download updates, and after that notify you so you can install it yourself.
