update Windows PC health check app

The PC Health Check app, initially released to let users identify whether their PCs meet the system requirements for Windows 11, now helps you quickly check the device’s health and other related information. But how do you update the PC Health Check app?

Surprisingly, there’s no built-in option to manually check and install updates. This is all the more concerning, as Microsoft, in an official blog post, talks about periodically updating the PC Health Check app to make it more streamlined and user-friendly.

How do I update the PC Health Check app on Windows?

1. Via the PC Health Check app’s interface

  1. Press Windows + S to open Search, type PC Health Check app in the text field, and click on the relevant result.launch for pc health check update

If PC Health Check fails to find a new version, it’s time you reinstall the app. This way, the older version gets replaced with the latest PC Health Check app. At the time of writing, the latest version is 3.9.2402.14001.

I recommend you periodically check for updates, as Microsoft is committed to the app’s development. And by not updating, you miss out on critical upgrades and enhancements!
