Keep your OS updated – including manual updates

Windows and macOS devices have automatic updates turned on by default, but there are usually updates you can perform manually, too. While optional, these updates can be very useful in maximizing the security of your devices and improving the performance of your OS, especially if you’ve been experiencing any problems that the automatic variety hasn’t solved. If you’re using Windows 10, go to Settings -> Update & Security -> Windows Update -> View optional updates. Here, you can potentially find additional updates for Windows and other devices you own.
