Welcome All, Windows 8.1…

Windows_8.1For those of you who have installed Microsoft’s latest offering, the Windows 8 software package, you would be interested to know Windows 8.1 is now available. The switch from Windows 7 to Windows 8 was quite radical. Having made changes to the layout, the entire operating system indeed takes some time to get used to. One thing Windows 8 users were frazzled with was the disappearance of the infamous “start” button.

What’s New?

Windows 8.1 offers users several new and enhanced features, along with the return of the “start” button. This makes it easier to navigate and find your programs without having to hover around looking for your desktop.

Why The Change?

Windows 8 reinvented Windows operating system for all touch devices. Organisational tools enabled users to have access to an enhanced global search, as well as better overall multi-monitor support.

New Features of Windows 8.1

Enjoy the convenience of the Start button, which now acts as a global search button, powered by Bing. For example, type into your start menu a specific topic, Mariah Carey, and get her Wikipedia page along with music videos and latest news from the songstress.

No more do users need to manually update their apps. Windows 8 automatically downloads updates when they’re available, always ensuring you have the latest of everything.

Available to all Windows 8 users, version 8.1 is easily attainable through the Store App.
