After getting the updated plugin, let’s see how to update them.

It would be much easier if we can update a plugin just like installing them: select the .zip file and upload. WordPress users, even beginners can do that easily. They don’t need any technical knowledge or install additional software to do the job. That’s what a plugin called Easy Theme and Plugin Upgrades does.

Firstly, you need to install this plugin. Go to Plugins → Add New and search for “easy theme and plugin upgrades”. When the results appear, click on the Install Now button, then Activate it.

After that, you can simply update this plugin just by uploading it. Go to Plugins and click Add New button, then click Upload Plugin. Then browse for the .zip file that you already downloaded. Then click Install Now button.
