Every month, Microsoft publishes a series of Windows Update for its Windows operating systems and other products with which to improve security and correct all kinds of problems and errors that may harm users. Therefore, it is very important to always keep the systems fully updated, however, there are some users who, for various reasons (a computer without Internet connection, a very low speed, etc.) can not enjoy the Windows Update having to ignore them or, At least, resort to other techniques to be able to install them without relying on an Internet connection.
Typically, Windows updates are automatically downloaded to computers when they connect to the Internet through Windows Update , however, there are some computers that can not connect to the Internet or have a speed too low to be able to safely download a Patch of about 1 GB, so many times these computers are left unreported.
So, here’s how to properly use the Microsoft Update Catalog to be able to manually download the updates you want and install them on any computer without the need for an Internet connection.
