Software programs such as Word, Excel, Adobe Reader and Acrobat, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Symantec require updates from time to time. Phone and tablet Apps release updates as well; check your App store or information within the App to explain what the update will do.
Updating software programs
To update a specific program on a PC , there is typically a “Check for Updates” option under its Help menu. You can also visit the company’s web site for patches, new versions and latest updates. You may be prompted by the software, when it opens or closes, if an automatic update feature is enabled. It is best to update automatically (enable it by checking the box), so you don’t forget.
