Add Windows Update To The Context Menu

The Windows Update feature In Windows 10 and prior, helps keep your PC safe and secure by downloading the latest patches and hotfixes, and Installing thereafter. For the most part, this Is an automated process, without the need for user Intervention. At times however, there Is the need to manually check for updates via the Windows Update Settings. In this tutorial, I will show you how to Implement the Windows Update Settings In the right-click context menu.

Ultimately, once you apply this neat little tweak, the Windows Update Settings feature will be available by simply right-clicking on a blank area on your desktop. You can see exactly what to expect, as per the Image above.

To achieve this, I will be using a Registry file that I've had the pleasure of locating whilst navigating on the net. Simply stated, double-click the file and the entries will be added to the Windows Registry. The Windows Update Settings feature, will then be available via the right-click context menu.

I've provided the download links for the files, at the end of this article. So let's get this tutorial happening.

Step One:
Once you download the archive file, extract It's contents to a folder of your choice. Then double-click the Add Windows Update.reg file as Illustrated below, and hit Yes.

Step Two:
A message will be received, stating that the entries have been successfully added to the Registry. Click OK to finalize the process.

Step Three:
Here's a visual of my right-click context menu, before I applied the above tweak.

Step Four:
And this Is the result. As you can see, the Windows Update Settings feature Is readily available, along with It's relative settings.

Last Step:
In the event you change your mind and wish to remove It, double-click the Remove Windows Update.reg file, then click Yes to finish.

Final Thoughts:
By default, the Windows Update Settings feature can be accessed by a few clicks of the mouse, but I've simplified the process by making It available at your fingertips. The advantage of this tweak, Is that you don't need to manually edit the Windows Registry- which Is susceptible to corruption If It's Incorrectly edited.

Use any of the links below to download the aforementioned Registry files.
