Question about Computers & Internet
A Patch is an update to the software, which updates the program. Usually it fixes bugs or adds new features. Some programs have an option to "Check for updates" on the About option.
Others require you to go to the manufacturer site, and download the patch from an Updates (or Downloads) page. They usually give you instructions on how to install it on the same page.
The general idea is to save the patch to your computer, then double-click on it. That usually starts the install.
If you need more specific instructions, post a follow up here with the software name and we can give you more help.
Here's a tip - when you post questions here, try to be a bit more specific about your issue - what software, what problems. You'll get a faster answer that way.
