This is another patch Tuesday and Microsoft released another Windows 10 update with some fixes and improvements. Unlike the previous updates, KB4550945 is an optional update. Which means, the KB4550945 update will not install automatically. However, if you open the Settings app, you will see it under the Optional Updates sections, provided your system meets the requirements.
Like with all updates, you can install the update directly from the Settings app. Just open the Settings app, go to “Update & Security → Windows Update” and click on the “Check for updates” button. Once you do that, Windows will check for and install all the available updates.
