Windows 8.1 Final Version Gets Global Release
On 17 October, Microsoft released its Windows 8.1 update for its flagship operating system. The download seeks to address some of the criticisms leveled at the original version of Windows 8. Windows 8 sought to bridge the gap between touchscreen devices, such as tablets and smartphones, and more traditional form laptops and desktop machines. As such it had an interface built of tiles that could be tapped or swiped to open applications.
Anyway, Windows 8.1 is available for download now. Let’s see the new features and changes included in Windows 8.1.
Start button: tapping once on this brings up the titled interface and a long press opens up system controls.
Desktop mode: lets people avoid the tiled interface entirely.
Keyboard shortcuts: removes the need to toggle between different on-screen keyboards when typing numbers and letters.
Gesture control: some applications, such as those for cooking, can now be paged through without touching a screen.
Tile sizing: the blocks on the touchscreen interface can be in one of four sizes.
Picture editing: A picture editor with pre-set effects come with the update, allowing for photo touchcups, cropping, contrast changes and other features.
Email update: The standard-issue Mail app now has a “power pane” on left-hand side with folders for updates from social networks like Facebook, messages from favorite contacts and newsletters. Some of these features work only with Microsoft accounts such as Hotmail and Outlook.com, though. A new “sweep” command deletes multiple messages with a couple taps.
Web browsing: Windows 8 machines will now display separate web pages side by side.
A host of other changes, including better support for multi-tasking and improved links to Microsoft’s Xbox game console, are also in the update.
As you know, for all Windows 8 users, it’s really free and simple to upgrade to Windows 8.1. But installing the new OS may not be as simple as it sounds, particularly for those with multiple computers to manage or those who installed the earlier Windows 8.1 Preview. Moreover, the Windows Store is the only way for consumers to download and install Windows 8.1. No ISOs will be made available, so each devices needs to be update individually via the Windows Store.
