Windows 8 update October 17th.

Postby Trashcooky » August 15th, 2013, 5:32 pm

Microsoft has confirmed the release date for Windows 8.1 as 17 October.
The firm said on the Windows blog that the Windows 8.1 update will be live at 12am on 18 October in New Zealand, so that's midday on 17 October here in the UK. It will be downloadable for free from the Windows Store.

Windows 8.1 brings a number of welcome changes to the desktop and tablet operating system including improved customisation, more Live Tile sizes, better multi-tasking and, in a small way, the return of the Start Button (another way of getting to the Start Screen).

Microsoft has also said Windows 8.1 will include Internet Explorer 11, Bing powered search, a better Windows Store and extra SkyDrive functionality.

If you can't wait until October then you can try the Windows 8.1 Preview version for free.
If it isn't broken then don't try to fix it!
