The update scans in SUMo are automatic, and takes a few minute or more to complete in Windows. SUMo juat informs you which software is updated, what version of the software you are using and software which has a new version which is not installed on your Windows computer.
When you press the Get Update button, it will direct you to its website where it uses Google Custom Search to search for the website where you can download the update, or you can open the software maker’s website through a link to manually update software. There are also search buttons to FileHippo, MajorGeek, Download.com, Softpedia, etc on KCSoftwares.com website, so you just need to press a button on a website to search for the installer file for the program on download sites like MajorGeek, FileHippo, and Softpedia.
A lot of software like web browsers, media players, and office suites automatically check and install updates after you open them in Windows, so you can just open a software like Firefox web browser, and it will inform you to install updates. You can open the software which has updates according to SUMo, and install updates with the built-in software updater like the updater in Firefox instead of opening all your software to check for updates one by one which can take a very long time.
Some installer files of web installer programs which uses the interner to download and install the latest version of the program from the software makers website, so your old web installer files currently in your downloads folde can be re-opened to download and install the latest version of a program from the web.

Its installer file size is about 1.5 Mb in size, so it is very fast to download and install, and does not use much space on my PC’s storage drive. There is also a lite version of SUMo which has no sponsored content. During the installation, you can choose not to install the ReleventKnowledge bundled software.
SUMo has some customizable features which let you manually add new titles to SUMo, drag and drop software titles to add to the progtam, remove software from its list, ignore software updates, and drag and drop software to SUMo.
