Checking for updates
For MuseScore 3 users, see Checking for updates
There are two ways to check for updates.
Automated update check
- From the menu, select Edit→Preferences... (Mac: MuseScore→Preferences...);
- Select the Update tab:
- Tick the box marked "Check for new version of MuseScore."
Now MuseScore will check for updates on every start and notify you, if need be.
Check for update
- From the menu, select Help→Check for Update:
- A dialog will appear with the update status: either "No Update Available" or "An update for MuseScore is available:" followed by a link to download it.
Note: These options are only available in the Mac and Windows versions of MuseScore (except the version from the Windows Store), as only those can be updated directly from MuseScore.org. Linux distributions (and the Windows Store) have different mechanisms to make updates available.
