Bad Bunny - X 100PRE Music Album Reviews

The expertly sequenced and always vibrant debut from the Puerto Rican rapper collects every fascinating side of Bad Bunny into one singular statement.
In the first three years of his nascent career, Bad Bunny put out enough singles and did enough guest features to fill out several albums. As an audition for pop superstardom, it’s been impressive. He can adapt to seemingly any style—trap, R&B, reggaetón, bachata, dembow—with a heavy, nasal croon perpetually drenched in Auto-Tune. He became a huge star in 2018, circumventing terrestrial radio and government censorship to become the third-most streamed artist in the world on YouTube. Why does Bad Bunny even need to release an album?

How To Use Automatic Updates In Windows 10

Windows 10 is updating all the time with new features, security patches and general system tweaks. We show you how to make sure that your PC stays in tip-top condition by using automatic updates. How to update Windows 10 automatically.

Microsoft works hard to ensure its Windows 10 OS remains the most powerful and feature-rich operating system in the world. To this end the company releases regular updates and improvements to keep things ticking over nicely.

If you want your PC to remain ship-shape, and also fend off the advances of any malware, viruses or other online nasties, then you’ll want to keep those updates rolling in. Thankfully this is very easy, and we’ll show you how.

Why You Should Update Windows
Windows 10 is a large and complex piece of software, which runs on a mind bogglingly wide range of devices. This means that it needs to be tweaked constantly to maintain optimum performance and correct any little bugs or quirks that creep into systems.

This can include updating driver software so that displays, peripherals, and printers all work the way they were intended, or adding new features to existing software such as OneNote, the Edge browser, or the operating system itself.

Finally there is the issue of security. Things change rapidly in the realm of online threats, so it’s essential that Windows is kept up to date so that any dangerous attacks can be stopped in their tracks.

Yes, it’s true that now and again updates can cause things to stop working, or even create new problems, but in the vast majority of cases it’s definitely something that is beneficial to your PC. What’s more, there’s a very good chance that it’s already applying these updates automatically. 

How To Use Automatic Updates
With the release of Windows 10 Microsoft took the decision to make automatic updates the default setting. This means that unless you have changed the setting manually then you’re already receiving the updates as soon as they come out.

Checking to see if this is that case only takes a couple of minutes. First of all go to the Start button (the one in the bottom left hand corner of the screen that looks like the Windows logo) and click on it.

Now select Settings from the menu directly above the Start button and in the window that appears you’ll need to find and click on Update & Security.

This opens up another window with a column on the left which has Windows Update at the top. Make sure this is highlighted in blue then look in the main panel on the right.

Here you’ll see Windows Update at the top of the screen and beneath it that last time the system was updated. If you want to see if there are any new updates available then click the Check for Updates button.
At the bottom of the screen you’ll see Advanced options written in blue text. Click on this to open up the next window.

Here you’ll see the heading Choose how updates are installed, with a drop down box below that gives you the options of Automatic (Recommended) or Notify to schedule restart. If it isn’t already, select Automatic.

That’s it. Now Windows will periodically search for updates and then apply them as they arrive.

To see which ones have been applied in the past just click on the View your update history option.

If you’d prefer not to receive updates automatically then you can turn off the feature. We’ve prepared a short guide to this already, so check out our How to disable updates in Windows 10 for more details, but we think you should leave the updates on if you want to get the best from Windows.
