Microsoft’s latest iteration of Windows has been having incredible difficulty being adopted by Windows users around the world. So much so, that many users fall back to the great Windows 7 or even all the way back to the legendary Windows XP which will be making its way into the history books soon. But the first update for Windows 8.1 is hoping to change all that. It’s bringing back some old tricks and even adding in a few new ones.
This is the first major update to Windows 8.1 and Microsoft is hoping that it’ll help put it’s latest version into the faces of more users.
Some new features include the ability to pin apps to the taskbar, a right-click context menu on the Start screen and a plethora of keyboard and mouse functionality improvements. The one key feature that will still be missing is the highly sought after Start Menu button but it should be added in within the next update or so according to Microsoft.
Also for users that were annoyed by the placement of the power menu which included Shutdown, Restart, Hibernate, and Sleep will hopefully be satisfied where Microsoft has added those options to.
So if you can’t wait to get your hands on the latest and greatest head on over to Neowin for the update files.
Thank you to Neowin for providing us with this information.
