Every few years Microsoft gets us in a state of excitement with the release of a new Windows operating system. Because Windows operating systems are widely used and considered the best operating systems you can choose, there is always an inevitable hype before any release. Windows 7 seemed to fix everything that had gone wrong with Windows Vista. While Vista was known to be very innovative, there were many problems. Nevertheless, we can not deny that it had given us many new features. After Windows 7 had perfected all the major aspects of Windows Vista, Microsoft decided to release a new version of its operating systems - Windows 8, which is also very innovative and generally well received.
Nevertheless, Windows 8 also had its share of problems, and the general public pointed this out early on. Fortunately Microsoft is a company that listens to its users and so they decided to solve all these little problems by releasing an update - Windows 8.1.
Description of the
Windows 8.1 lets you experience the best of both worlds when it comes to working and playing. We all know that we can either just work or play all the time. That's why it's important to find the optimum point between the two, and Windows 8.1 does just that. With a little help from Windows 8.1 you can connect, create, discover, play and work and enjoy at the same time. If you're still using Windows XP / Vista / 7, maybe it's time to upgrade to Windows 8.1 and experience all its innovations.
Features & Benefits
Since Windows 8.1 is essentially the updated version of the Windows 8 operating system, we won't talk about the standard and familiar Windows features we all know, such as new visual design and a new taskbar. Instead, we will talk about the little things designed to make everyday tasks easier, as well as your life.
Sometimes small things tend to make a big difference, and Windows 8.1 does just that. So today we'll talk about some of the best new features you can try and experience with Windows 8.1.
Easier desktop experience
When Windows 8 was released, users were outraged because they didn't know how to access some of the most basic features that any Windows operating system previously had. With Windows 8.1 you can easily navigate via Properties> Navigation tab by right-clicking on the desktop taskbar. There you will find tools that allow you to start directly on the desktop. The Start button will launch the screen with all apps, you can disable them, disable active corners ("Hot Corners"), and much more.
Higher productivity and multitasking
If something doesn't work entirely on a tablet, it doesn't mean it won't work on a computer. At least that's the case with 8.1. Windows 8 struggled with multitasking and users were not impressed or satisfied with the operating system's ability to run multiple apps at the same time. With Windows 8.1, you can now run and play three or more applications simultaneously, and you can decide how much screen space each app takes up.
New setting for the user interface
In Windows 8, you had to click several times to navigate through the control panel if you wanted to make any kind of change. It was quite frustrating for the users. With Windows 8.1, you can easily access the PC settings menu and set everything you need to adapt to your needs in no time at all.
Better instructions with tutorials
Windows 8 brought many innovations such as charm bars, live tiles and active corners, but it didn't sufficiently explain to users how these features work. With Windows 8.1, you get a complete tour of each feature right after your first login!
With this operating system, you get the standard apps we've all used before, such as alarm, sound recorder, scan and calculator. These apps don't need any special introduction. However, you also have access to even more new applications such as the Eating & Drinking application, which is filled with recipes and details on various dishes, and Health & Fitness will help you get your body and health in shape.
Faster surfing with Internet Explorer 11
If you're a frequent Internet user, you probably know that everyone makes fun of Internet Explorer because it's slow and unresponsive. Most people will tell you that this browser is only good for downloading Mozilla or Google Chrome. This could be the case in the past, but not now. Internet Explorer 11 is designed to run smoothly and quickly on even the most demanding websites. It also features a new Read View mode that makes reading articles easier than ever before.
Easy cloud access with SkyDrive
If you want to access your files on any device, you'll be glad to know that Windows 8.1 comes with SkyDrive, which lets you store all your files and access them easily from any other device later.
If you're already using another version of a Windows operating system, you probably know that there are always minimum requirements your machine should meet in order for the operating system to work properly.
