How to Update Windows 10 Offline
The first method used is offline. This guide will be useful for saving quota and only need an internet connection once when downloading Windows update for the first time.
How to update Windows 10 offline can use in several ways. Here’s a guide to updating Windows 10 offline:
#1. Using Portable Update Software
The easiest way is to use the Portable Update tool. In this way, you can update Windows 10 from a flash and can be used on other computers with the same operating system.
Portable Update will download all updates and you can install any update files your computer needs.
However, even though this software is offline, it still requires an internet connection for the first time of use.
Here’s how to update Windows 10 offline using Portable Update:
1. The first step is to download the Portable Update software on the official site. Make sure to download the latest version.
2. After downloading, install, and open the Portable Update software. Then check all files and select Start.
3. Open the Search tab and press the Start button to start searching for updates that are not installed on Windows 10 that are currently in use.
4. After that move to the Downloads tab and press the Start button to start downloading the update file that you were looking for.
5. If so, open the folder where the extract was. In this case, the Portable Update folder is PortUp, and open the Cache folder, then there will be several files that have been downloaded by Portable Update, and install each file earlier.
6. It’s finished and you can move the file to a Flashdisk or External Hard Drive for use on another computer with the same operating system.
#2. Windows 10 Update With LAN Network
How to update Windows 10 using a LAN (Local Area Network) is perfect for use in environments that use a lot of computers such as work or school environments.
Why? Because this method only requires one time to download the update file and then it can be used on other computers which of course use the same operating system.
Why bother downloading the same file if you can transfer the file? Save quota and time right?
To make sure this method works perfectly, make sure the host computer and other computers are on the same network huh!
Here’s how to update Windows 10 offline using LAN:
1. The first step is done on computer 1 by opening Start then selecting Settings then typing Delivery Optimization Settings in the search box on the page and clicking the search result.
2. After the configuration panel appears, change the Allow downloads from other PCs section to ON and check PCs on my local network.
3. Then open computer 2 and navigate to the Windows Update section then click Check for updates. If there is a recent update on computer 1 then computer 2 connected to the same network will receive the same update as computer 1.
Note: Computer 1 = Host Computer and Computer 2 = Another computer on the same network as the host computer.
#3. Through the Microsoft Update Catalog
For those of you who want to update Windows offline, you can use this method.
But before that, you have to download the patch first at the Microsoft Update Catalog. Besides that, you can rest assured, because the patch provided is free.
Here’s how to update Windows 10 offline with a patch :
- First, you can visit the Microsoft Update Catalog site first.
- Then find a patch that fits your version of Windows 10. For example 1803, 1903, or 1909.

- After successfully downloading, now extract the patch.
- Then to start the installation process, you can double-click the patch file with the .msu or .exe extension.

If you are not familiar, you should only use the previous methods. Because the patch provided sometimes likes to be separate and impractical.
#4. Download Windows 10 Patches Updates
This method is recommended for those of you who want to download the update file specifically without any additional installation files.
But you have to know what files you are going to download. Not recommended for those of you who are not familiar with what files to download for the Windows 10 update.
Here’s how to update Windows 10 offline by using patch updates:
