Windows 8.1 August Update Available for Download
As you most likely know, this update doesn’t bring anything too exciting, but small improvements to a number of features we have in Windows 8.1, so no Start menu or options to run Metro apps on the desktop for now.
Change log :
• Settings changes for Update and Recovery - This feature introduces new information in the Windows Update Settings, and gives you more information on how up to date your systems are by displaying the most recent check for updates and the last date updates were installed.
• Precision touchpad improvements - This feature adds the following three end-user settings to control the behavior of precision touchpad devices (under the Mouse and touchpad menu in PC Settings):
- Leave touchpad on when a mouse is connected
- Allow right-clicks on the touchpad
- Double-tap and drag
• Ruble symbol update - This feature adds new Ruble currency support for input and rendering.
• Out-of-date ActiveX control blocking
• Wi-Fi Direct APIs for Discoverability - new set of APIs for Independent Hardware Vendors (IHV) or computer OEMs to develop Windows-based applications on all supported x86-based and x64-based versions of Windows 8.1. This enables IHVs and OEMs to build a Miracast receiver on Windows.
• Video capture metadata for MP4 - adds capability for developers to read and write the "Date taken" and GPS data on MP4 files by using Windows Runtime and Win32 APIs.
• Minimizing Logon Prompts for Microsoft SharePoint Online - reduces the number of prompts with federated use in accessing SharePoint Online sites. If you select the "Keep me signed in" check box when you log on for the first time, you will not see prompts for successive access attempts to that SharePoint Online site.
