Prior to update of Windows 7 to Windows 10, I used to manually upload the new security patches.

Question: How this is done with windows 10?

It is now automatic. Windows 10 will download updates and then let you know / you can choose a time to restart the computer. That was in the agreement you agreed to when you upgraded to Windows 10. Very different.

Patch Tuesday is regular, so on the evening of Patch Tuesday, I force the update process (Check for Updates), let updates happen and then restart "now" . Seems better than waiting and I have done this for all (two) Patch Tuesdays since Windows 10 came out.

Thank for the post. Below screen is what I have. It seems, updates are handled automatically? Does this looks correct to you?

So, unlike Windows 7, I do not have to do a thing, so it seems.Windows10Update

The screen you posted is exactly what you will see when updates are ready. In theory, you do not have to do a thing, but restarts may be inconvenient to you. When I see the screen above (usually because I forced updates on Patch Tuesday, I save my stuff and click on Restart Now. This is best for me.
