Windows updates for staff

Over the coming months, staff will be moved to an updated and more secure version of Windows 10 on desktop/laptops.

This may cause some disruption to your day-to-day work, and the update may take up to two hours to install.

Why are we doing this?

This is part of our bigger programme of technical improvements to ensure that you are using the most up-to-date and secure version of Windows possible, particularly as we approach the new academic year.

What can you expect?

  • You will receive an alert over the coming weeks asking that you accept an update to your machine.
    - A King's Branded Notification will appear in the bottom right of the screen
    - King's laptops will receive the upgrade via the Software Centre, which you can access and activate yourself.
    - King's Desktops will automatically install the update during maintenance time (01.00 – 05.00) if they are left on.
  • The update could take up to two hours to install.
  • You can defer the update up to five times, but after that the update will be automatically installed.
