Not the question you might want to ask is, is it possible to carry out an update/installation offline? Well, this article will talk on how to update Windows 10 offline.

Let’s talk about the updates that can be installed offline

PC can function properly without installing any updates, but that does not mean you should neglect the regular updates coming into the system.

Installing updates or any software updates is sometimes necessary because it either secures the system or make it perform better but for operating system updates, they are meant to improve your system’s performance, secure your files and data from potential threats.

Every day, hackers and researchers come up with new bugs and vulnerabilities to enable them to exploit systems. But Microsoft always ensures that their system is updated so that these exploits can be fixed.

Updates might come with new features to wrestle with bugs and other issues associated with the PC to give it optimal performance. However, whenever you come across Windows 10 update, install them.

A Windows user can change the settings that can delay the updates from installing, but avoiding these updates can lead to security issues or hacking to some extent.

How to Update Windows 10 Offline?

Below are the several ways you can install Windows 10 updates offline.

1. Locally Download the Updates



If you are on a slow or metered network, you need not worry because Microsoft has come up with a feature that can help you overcome this challenge.

This feature allows you to download Windows updates from another computer using a LAN connection where the update has been received. Follow the instructions below:

  • Navigate to the Settings and then go to Delivery Optimization Settings
  • Tap on ‘Allow downloads from other PCs’, then select the PCs you want on the Local Network.

You can download from your Local Network and the Internet if you want to speed up the process. To do that, first, check for an update manually before beginning with the download.

2. How to Download Your Update In Advance


To install the update in advance, you need to download the update in advance too. To do this, follow the steps below:

  • Go to the Settings and then press “I”
  • Then select “Updates and Security”

If it schedules the restart or restarts, then go-ahead to install the update. You can install the update later on whenever you are offline. To schedule the installation for another time, click on ‘schedule the restart’ and pick a time you want it to install.

3. Using Media Creation Tool to Download Updates Offline
