Windows and Mac computers are updated automatically on set schedules. Some software updates require a restart to take effect, so you may be prompted to restart after certain updates. Windows updates are pushed out automatically. Mac updates can be retrieved through the Flagler Apps application, or are applied automatically on Fridays at noon.
