Why isn't "check for update" button on "Help -> About" page?

Every application I can think of has a "Check for Update" button on their Help -> About page or they automatically check for a newer available version when going there.  "Check for Update' is a separate selection on the Help menu.  This could stay there, but it sure would be nice to have a de facto standard methodology implemented. 

I know that we are prompted to update and provided a button for doing so when doing a OSU, but I always save a backup before updating.  So I do my backup, then go to "Help -> About" and realize, Oh, this is Quicken and it's done differently. 

Please consider this simple change.

    In my brief survey of applications we use, the defacto standard appears to be Help > Check for Updates.

    As far as I can see, there isn't any "standard" for this.

    But it was wrong of me to post why not to have something like this.

    For suggestions you should go to the Home page and select New Post -> New Idea.

    I'm going to flag this for the moderator to turn it into as suggestion that people can vote on.
