Info from Microsoft (c):

With Windows 10 automatic updating, you don't have to search for updates online or worry that critical fixes for Windows 10 might be missing from your computer. Windows 10 automatically checks for the latest updates for your computer. Depending on the Windows Update settings you choose, Windows can install updates automatically or just let you know they're available.

2.) See which updates Windows-10 has automatically installed!

Please start Windows 10 Run Command Dialog and enter the command:
or: shell:AppUpdatesFolder

Then you can immediately see the installed auto updates on your Windows 10 ;-)
