Set When SnapGene Checks for Updates

How do I set the interval at which SnapGene checks for software updates?

Show Preferences

Click SnapGene → Preferences (macOS) or Edit → Preferences (Windows or Linux). If necessary, select "General" in the sidebar.

To disable checking for updates, uncheck the box labeled "Check for updates".

To change the interval, use the drop-down menu to choose whether to check daily, weekly, or monthly.

To check for updates immediately, click the Check Now button.

To download new updates automatically (when available), check the box labeled "Download updates automatically".

IT managers can also disable Update checks when installing SnapGene - see Adjust the Configuration.
