MWC 14: Microsoft announced a spring update for Windows 8.1

Though our focus is very much inclined towards the MWC and we are all pretty much engrossed in the mobile show and that’s how it’s going to be for this entire week but we have Microsoft making announcements which are on the Windows side.

Earlier this afternoon, the Vice President made an announcement for a new update coming this Spring for the Windows 8.1. Some major changes will be made to the User Interface and the update will predominantly have more hardware options which are coming as a good news for the non touch users. The new software update is going to support the devices which fall into the lower pricing range and have as little as 1GB of RAM and 16GB storage. The update will also bring ease of app launching and switching using the taskbar along with changes in the mouse interface which will now include some new options for closing the apps. Now users will also be able to right click to get to the start main screen.

This update is certainly focusing more on the users who don’t prefer to use touch that often. To this, the VP has already stated that Microsoft surely loves the touch interface but the most important thing right now is to keep users happy and this update will make things better and more user friendly for the non touch users.
