    Does Win 10 Home automatically update? I still have Build 10240.

    Yes, it should.

    If you have a look at this webpage you'll see that Build 10240 is the previous branch. It should have updated automatically to Build 10586 last November.

    What happens when you click Start > Settings > Update & security > Check for updates?

    Hope this helps...

    I read on MS info page that all Win 10 HOME automatically update without help from user. Obviously that is not true. Should I treat updates the same way as I did with Win 7 by manually updating. I have always followed Susan Bradley's instructions when updating WIn 7, but hoped Win 10 would be easier. Any other words of wisdom for me?

    "should have" would have been nice for the lady that bought a new local-store-built computer 2 weeks ago if the builder had bothered to do it before the sale. It had 10240 installed. Cost her more for my time to get it fully updated.

    "I read on MS info page that all Win 10 HOME automatically update without help from user."
    --- I just checked my Win10 Home and there are 2 install options available
    --- Automatic (recommended)
    --- Notify to schedule restart

    "Check for updates show 3147461, 3125217, 890830, 3154132"
    Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool for Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 - May 2016 (KB890830)
    --- Dated 5/10/16
    Security Update for Adobe Flash Player for Windows 10 Version 1511 (KB3154132)
    --- Dated 4/27/16
    I do not have 3147461, 3125217: maybe it’s because I upgraded afterward

    "Should I treat updates the same way as I did with Win 7 by manually updating."
    --- I think that MS does do so automatically based on your system.

    But your issue involves Rick's information
    "Build 10240 is the previous branch. It should have updated automatically to Build 10586 last November."
    On 5/10/16 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 (KB3156421) > (build 10586.318) was released. Run www.belarc.com and see what is reported in the OS section.
    My Win10 Home reports Windows 10 Home (x64) Version 1511 (build 10586.318)
    Please let us know what you get

    In this particular case, you can:
    Hold down the Windows-key and briefly press the R-key. This will open the "run" window.
    Type WINVER and then press the ENTER-key.
    A window should open with the current Windows Version info in it.

    (Belarc Advisor is handy for other reasons, but overkill just to find the version info.)

    I hope you have run WINVER per RockE’s recommendation

    Now that it’s a few days later, check whether or not your windows updates are up to date.
    --- I know you are wondering about this, but MS is supposed to keep Win10 updates automatically so it might be a good idea to check the list of all of your updates by going to view your update history.
    --- With all of that said though, there are times those updates don’t come through until a few days later than expected

    Click on settings
    Click on update and security
    Click on advanced options

    The next page will show choose on how updates are installed
    Click on view your update history
    >>> I think its one of those 2 pages in which updates that still should be installed will look will be looked for and you can follow through from there
    >>> Since my updates are up to date, I can’t test which page does that

    On the page to view your update history, if you have an entry for Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 (KBxxxxxxx), what is the most recent KBxxxxxxx & date for it?

    According to the WU page http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/w...ry-windows-10# they are still updating 10240.
    NOTE: I had to run MCT to get to 10586 because it never updated from 10240 on it's own.

    lumpy95's post (#10) reminded me that I also used the MCT tool to manually update to 10586 when mine wouldn't update automatically from 10240. Perhaps that's the easiest way to go?

    I have upgraded a number of Win10 systems that were stuck on 10240 with the Media Creation Tool.

    Several of those systems were new OEM machines the customers had bought then found they needed help with things that weren't working well, and also with copying their files off their old system & setting up email etc.

    Only one of those OEM systems had a more recent build than 10240. It had been returned to the OEM under warranty (motherboard failure), so whoever did the work on it must have upgraded it.

    My laptop ( that wouldn't update to 1511 on it's own ) is an HP so there must be something about OEM's that doesn't trigger the 1511 update all the time.

    Does the date make a difference?

    Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 (KB3140743) > (build 10586.218)

    Originally I upgraded my HP laptop Win7 Pro to Win10 Pro on 8/4/15 to Build 10240, auto updates worked fine except that it would never update to 1511 Build 10586. On 2/3/16 I D/L and ran the MCT which brought me to 1511 Build 10586.71, on 2/9/16 KB3135173 brought it to Build 10586.104, on 3/2/16 KB3140743 brought it to 10586.122, on 3/8/16 KB3140768 brought it to 10586.164, on 4/12/16 KB3147458 brought it to 10586.218, on 5/10/16 KB3156421 brought it to 10586.318.
    Hope this helps.
