Update windows offline

There are times when we don’t have an internet connection, or sometimes the internet is just slower than a turtle spinning at full speed. So what can be done in a situation like this? Don’t cry guys, we have the solution.

How to Update Windows Offline Without an Internet Connection

You will need an app called Portable Update . With this application, there is nothing to install, you just need to save its files in the folder from which you ran the executable file. We saw fit to run it from external media, such as a USB drive.

With the free Portable Update software, you can download, install, update Windows 11/10 offline, without having an Internet connection.

A big advantage of using Portable Update is that it doesn’t leave a trace in the Windows Registry, so if you encounter any errors, they’re likely not caused by the application.

How to use portable update:

Once the application is launched, users should encounter a multi-tabbed graphical user interface. It’s not the prettiest user interface in the world, but we doubt many people care.

The tabs allowed us to perform various tasks such as using the search function, selecting the items needed for downloading and checking the update history.

When we clicked on an item in the History tab, it gave us more details to examine. Nothing we’d use regularly, but advanced users might find it appealing.

There’s a Download tab right in the mix, and it lets us download all updates for Windows 11/10, even the ones we already have. One might wonder why someone would want to download an update they already have. Well, that’s just in case the latest update crashes the system.

We must point out that all updates downloaded via Portable Update are saved in the Cache folder . This is where the app taps when it needs to update your computer without an internet connection.

We like that Portable Update gives us a lot of information about the computer. We can display the operating system serial number as well as the architecture type and more.

Keep in mind that you will need a fast internet connection to download all required items. Once you have selected everything, you need to download, click on the start button and go have a cup of coffee while the app does the task.

Portable Update also comes with a download status bar, so you can monitor how long it takes for items to download to your computer.

Downloading updates is the only time you’ll need an internet connection, but it won’t be necessary during installation. If you didn’t know before, updates from Windows Update require the computer to be connected to the Internet for the updates to be installed. Portable Update works similar to Windows Update, but without the need for a constant connection.
