With default settings, Windows Defender in Windows 10 and Windows 8.1 downloads and installs required updates once a day and doesn’t require manual intervention. That is, Defender automatically checks for update and downloads updates, if available. But if your PC isn’t connected to the internet or for some other reason you want to manually install updates, you can do so by following the given below instructions.
