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.


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.


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


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


Tap Install now.


Tap Done.

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