Update your Samsung PC

Software updates are a vital part of keeping your PC running its best. It's important to periodically check for updates since they are released at different intervals. To make things easier, your Samsung PC allows you to quickly check and apply updates. You can even customize the update options, so they'll only happen at times that are convenient for you.

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by software version and model.

Use Samsung Update

Note: Samsung Update is not available on the Galaxy Book S. If you want to update this device, use Windows Update instead.

Samsung Update is usually preinstalled on Samsung PCs, but you can download it from the Microsoft Store if you don't see it.

Samsung Update allows you to download updates and drivers for your Samsung software. Select Start, and then scroll to and select Samsung Update. Enter your PC's model number in the Search bar at the top right, and then choose the appropriate software version. Select your desired drivers or installation files, and then click Download. The updates will automatically install.

If you aren't sure about your PC's model number, click How to find your device model name, and then follow the instructions.

Use Windows Updates

You do not have to fire up your browser to check for updates; you can look for them right from your Start menu.

Click the Start icon, and then click Settings. Click Update & Security, and then click Check for updates. If Windows finds updates, they will download and install automatically.

There are other update options available in this menu. For example, if you don't want to perform an update right now, you can pause updates for 7 days.

Here are the other available update settings:

  • Pause updates for 7 days: Prevent any updates from automatically installing for a week.

  • Change active hours: Set the time you are using your PC, so it will not automatically restart. You can even automatically adjust the active hours based on your activity.

  • View update history: See which updates were made and when. Here you can uninstall updates and also access the recovery mode.

  • Advanced options: Receive updates for other Microsoft products, change restart options, and more.

Uninstall updates

Sometimes updates happen at an inconvenient time. If needed, you can uninstall a recent update to make things go back to the way they were.

Click the Start icon, and then click Settings. Click Update & Security, and then click View update history. Click Uninstall updates, and then right-click your desired update. Click Uninstall, and then click Yes to confirm. Wait for the update to be removed; during this process, your PC may restart.
