While the manual update approach is reliable, it can be inconvenient as you’re not aware of when a newer version might be released unless the GitHub page is verified frequently. Hence, here are steps to automatically update Stable Diffusion WebUI:

  1. Start by pressing Windows + E to open File Explorer on Windows. Next, go to the root folder of Stable Diffusion WebUI.
  2. Once the Stable Diffusion WebUI folder is open, look for a webui-user file with the .bat (batch file) extension.
Find webui-user bat file
  1. After you find the specified file, right-click on it, and from the options, click Edit.
Click on Edit
  1. By doing so, you will find the batch file loaded. Now add git pull text at the start and save the file by pressing Ctrl + S.
Type git pull
  1. With the batch file updated on launching the Stable Diffusion WebUI using the webui-user.bat file, you will notice the git pull command run first, followed by commands needed to load Stable Diffusion.
Run webui user bat file
