Microsoft officially announces Windows 8.1 update 1 and shows off the new features

Windows 8.1 update 1 is getting ready to hit the market as soon as this Spring and Microsoft has kept mum about the OS until now. Microsoft broke the silence by announcing the Windows 8.1 update 1 in the mobile world congress.

This poster shows the new features in Windows 8.1 update 1. Of course all of these features have been found in the leaked version. Microsoft also said that the update will be released in Spring but the most probable date is April 8 which turns out to be the Patch Tuesday.

The new power options in the start screen is a good change because most of the new users will find Windows more familiar to use. Also the context menu for desktop users has undergone a great visual change over and it now resembles the context menu found in Desktop. As I said before, the Taskbar plays a major role in the switching and navigation between apps. It shows up when you bring the pointer to the bottom. The Enterprise mode is a new addition to IE 11 which improves the compatibility.And it's also notable that Windows 8.1 update 1 will run in lower end devices with 16GB storage and 1GB of RAM. Windows 8.1 update 1 will be more faster than what Windows 8.1 is now. Windows gets better and better !
