It is recommended to check for updates manually if you want to install the updates at the earliest point in time as Windows does not check for updates in real-time. Tap on the Windows-key, type Windows Update and select the appropriate option from the search results. Locate "check for updates" and click on the link or button Windows will run a manual check for updates and display all that are compatible with the system
Updates are also made available on Microsoft's Download Center as standalone patches. There you will also find links pointing to monthly security ISO images that Microsoft releases that contain all patches of a given month.
