What's New in Windows Update 1 8.1

Hello friends, today's tutorial we will talk about news that brings OS Update 1 8.1 Windws
As you probably know by April 8 was released for Windows Update 1 8.1, update that has bring a more pleasant user experience. Microsoft has probably realized that many users have not migrated yet to touch screens or touch to tablets and then have said little to improve the user experience of the operating system. Even when you sit triumphed in front of a computer, if it has a monitor with touch support, touch monitor touch to work with applications, operating system, are unnatural in such a case. We are all accustomed to use the mouse and keyboard you give us more security in using the system and in some cases helps us to be even faster than we do monitor touch gestures.
As a result Microsoft has decided to bring Windows Update 1 8.1 the following improvements:
- Metro UI can add applications (or apps from the home screen) in the taskbar in Desktop interface or you can remove
- Apps section can filter applications by name, date of installation, the most used, by categories
- Taskbar in the Desktop interface can now be displayed in the interface Start. Unfortunately it automatically hides when not in use when you are in the interface you can start to rebuild and will be visible from the mouse to place the arrow (cursor mouseu's) in the bottom of the screen
- Start applications from the interface (those downloaded from the Play Store) can be launched from the Desktop interface if they were added to the Taskbar
- In the upper right of the interface Start applications were added to locking buttons (close) and minimize (minimizing). When you minimize an application from the Start interface will be minimized in the taskbar and can be brought back again in the foreground by clicking its icon in the Taskbar.
- Desktop interface, in the upper right next to your user name was added to the button Sleep, Shut Down, Restart
Tied performance after installing Windows Update 8.1 1 can tell you that RAM usage dropped 10%. I can not guarantee this because I used Windows 8.1 Update 1 in a virtual environment but I noticed that before Update 1 mode incactiv system used 50% di 1 GB RAM and after I installed Update 1 system used 40% of 1 GB RAM
Update 1 you can make it through Windows Update and is free, its official name is "Windows Update 8.1 (KB2919355)". Its installation took minutes 30 time to download and then to install user requesting a restart

          Check in history updates (we have shown in this tutorial how you do that) if you have installed updates and KB KB 2871389 2917499. Without these two updates it will not be offered to the watered-8.1
          After you install you should find the update in the Store.
          If you still have two updates installed when the following steps:
          - Go to Desktop interface
          - Windows + R keys slam
          - in the Run box write "wsreset.exe" (without the quotes) and click OK
          - Store opens instantly site but the update still looking
          - Yes restart the computer when the store opens back and search the update again
          It is possible that Store Your not show the newest content and the above command in Run reset date Store website, you give a refresh

  5. Adrian, please tell me how will behave Win 8.1 the following configuration:
    - Processor AMD Athlon (tm) Dual Core X64 2 3600 1,91 + GHz
    - 1 GB RAM
    - Plate v ideo: ATI Radeon X1050
    OS is 32 bit.
    PS: Now run 7 Win Home Premium.

    • Adrian Gudus said

      We already have a tutorial on hardware verification that you have to find out if you can install Windows 8 / 8.1 on your PC. Up to know how it will behave you first need to find out if you have drivers available for your components.
      Find the search box right above our tutorial on "How to find out if and computer software are compatible with Windows 8.1"

      • If you are a little and think ... now running Win 7 will run equally well and Win 8 / 8.1 (correct me if I'm wrong).

    I was still very much .. If even we might use Windows fan :)) .. but it seems to me that the new 8.1 everything was slow ... So I switched to Linux Mint Mate 16 which I find much faster than Windows, especially on the net ... But I bit off all Windows 8.1 and all visual effects, I made a classic theme in one with high contrast white and keep it for video games .. do not think that I am going to I move back to Windows
    Thanks anyway .. Information

  14. Hello I have a vodafone smart 3 and I want to root it nice you could please do a tutorial on this topic? Thanks in advance!

  15. Howdy,

    I've installed the windows update 8.1 1 and I had no problem with it when I installed various software (drivers etc) and in games has grown less FPS, eg Dayz Standalone 40 had something fps and now I 50 something.
    The only thing that is an "impediment" to me is that in utorrent when downloading different one hear a strange buzzing from the source (not fan speed, etc. I did tests and I stripped every piece and buzzing coming from inside source ) and how it no longer downloads anything and how do I exit from utorrent buzzing stops instantly (if you watch movies or even if a game-4 5 hours continuously buzzing no nothing) but strange is that in windows when the ultimate 7 download by utorrent not hear any buzz but 8 Windows versions.
    Source is practically new, acquired acu` two months, and still is certified 80 + (corsair builder series cx500 v2) and did not think I'd work something out with the guarantee since solely in uTorrent and only in Windows versions 8 ..
    Thank you.

  16. I've installed the latest update from 8.1 and have the following problems:
    When I give shutdown stops and the LED remains lit on headphones but what bothers me most is that I press any key PC starts. All this is happening after I installed this update.

  17. Ubuntu LTS launched 14.04, Adriane, a tutorial presentation wait for him

  18. I did update u that goes ok, but I have one problem. When you give a "refresh the desktop gives me C: \ User \ Ovi \ Desktop is not accessible, and can not make any" shortcut on the desktop. it gives me error. Waiting for a response. Thanks!

    I honestly am not a big fan of Windows 8.1. Recently I learned that Windows 9 Preview launches on September 30 - 1 October. You do the same as the Windows 8 - 8.1 a series of tutorials? I personally use Windows 7 and 9 just think Windows can attract me to do an upgrade.
