To Keep Getting Future Patches, Windows 8.1 Users Must Need To Download Update 1

Windows 8.1 Update 1 was released in April, but if you have not yet installed it you won’t be able to get the patches that are scheduled for release today on wards. Microsoft has already informed that they are going to cut off future patches to Windows 8.1 immediately after Update 1 was released, but they resumed support after receiving feedback from users.


The extended grace period is going to end today, as per the Microsoft spokesperson:

“Customers who rely on Windows Updates (as opposed to Windows Server Update Service commonly used in corporate environments), and who have chosen to manually select and/or download updates instead of accepting Windows’ default update settings to automatically install, and who have then deselected the Windows 8.1 update for download or installation, will not see subsequent updates because they only apply once the Windows 8.1 Update is installed. Manually downloading these subsequent updates will result in failed installation for the same reason”.

 Windows 8.1 Update 1 offers users lots of improvements, and well-deserved support to mouse keyboard and desktop operators. Instead of going to start button and lunching apps it gives you an option to pin modern apps into task bar. Microsoft has enhanced the mouse click functionality as well as the Start screen-accessible Power button.
