While most of the media attention to Windows today is on the final nail in the coffin for Windows XP….but Windows 8 has some big news as well….Windows 8.1 Update that was released today. While it won’t bring back the beloved start menu just yet (it’s coming soon!), this update will give you the ability to boot directly to the desktop, another top annoyance. A small step, but a big one towards making customers happier and more comfortable working with Windows 8. To update, please update via the Windows store, or in control panel via search for updates.
