Windows Update tells you whether your computer is currently supported. But it won’t tell you what version of Windows you are running. Your operating system version number appears there.
If your PC isn’t supported, you might want to upgrade to Windows 10. However, if you don’t like Windows 10, you can still use Windows 7 or 8.1. To do that, follow these steps:
Click Change PC settings. Type the following command into the prompt window: wuauclt /updatenow. This will open Windows Update again. Choose Install Updates Automatically. When prompted, choose OK. Wait while Windows downloads and installs updates. Reboot your PC once the installation process completes.
Once you reboot, check your PC health status. The PC Health Check app gives you a lot more information about your PC than Windows Update does.
