How to Check Windows Update History using Command Prompt (or Windows PowerShell)
Windows updates are automatically installed and ensure that your Windows the system is up-to-date with the latest security patches, bug fixes and hotfixes.
You can check your Windows Update history by going to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and clicking on “View installed update history”. But there’s another way. And it may be faster for you.
You can check your update history using Command Prompt this way:
Type CMD in taskbar search and press Enter.
At the prompt in the Command window enter the following command:
wmic qfe list
And then press Enter.
All your updates will be listed in order of installation date. If you’re a Windows PowerShell fan, you’ll be happy to know that you use PowerShell instead of a Command Prompt and achieve the same results.
