How to use the latest and greatest software updates

Software updates are often touted as a new and revolutionary technology, but they can sometimes be downright nasty.

Here are a few tips to keep your device up to date.

1.

Open the app drawer in the taskbar, then scroll to the bottom of the screen.

This will bring up a menu where you can install and uninstall apps, or clear the cache of apps that you have installed.

2.

If you’re using a Chromebook, navigate to the Settings app and tap “Software updates”.

3.

Tap the software update icon in the top-right corner.

4.

Tap Install now.

5.

Tap Done.

If that fails, check your software update settings, and you should see the update now available.
