  • Hi,

    Go to control panel --> Add or remove programs.

    Here you need to locate this security patch and you will get installed date as well.

    I hope this will help you out.

    Thanks, Rahul Rashu

  • Hi Laxmiprasad,


    For your first question.


    If you have a stand-alone installation of SharePoint, your computer will update automatically if you have Automatic Update enabled. Or you need to download and install them by yourself. However, if you install a hotfix that was released in an installer package on a stand-alone installation, you are prompted to manually run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard.


    If you are in a server farm environment, software updates are not installed automatically, even if the Automatic Updates feature is enabled on your Web servers.


    For more information, you can refer to article:




    For your second question,


    You can find them under update history or add or remove programs(select show updates).


    Hope this helps.
