Little by little, Microsoft is making it easier to update applications, tools and components. In some cases through the Application Store and in others like PowerShell, making it easy to update through Windows Update.
PowerShell can be upgraded by following this method from version 7.2 Preview.5 to 7.2 Preview.7. In this way, updating through Windows Update replaces the method we have been using until now.
More accessible updates
When we first start Windows, the PowerShell Command Console is already installed, but it is most common that we need to perform an update process. In fact, PowerShell 5 is the version that ships by default in Windows 10.
Until now, to update PowerShell, we had to wait for the command console prompt to access an update available on GitHub. From this page, users had to download and install the app.
Now, with PowerShell 7, this process is making history, as the latest updates can be accessed directly from the Windows Update section in “Settings”, either with Windows Update for Business, WSUS, SCCM or the interactive dialog. of WU in Settings.
To update PowerShell through Windows Update, the computer must be running at least Windows 10 RS3 (10.0.16299) or later, as well as PowerShell 7.2 (preview 5 or 6).
Además, el equipo debe estar configurado para recibir actualizaciones de los productos de Microsoft, algo que se puede activar en el apartado “Recibir actualizaciones para otros productos de Microsoft cuando actualice Windows” dentro de la route “Configuración”, “Actualización de Windows” y “Advanced options”.
When the update to PowerShell is available, it can be updated by following the usual method of updates in the path “Start> Settings> Update and security> Windows Update” then clicking on “Check for updates up to date”.
