Microsoft made the installation of Windows 8.1 Update a mandatory baseline for users that want to receive future updates, but a substantial amount of them experienced various issues when deploying the first ever refresh of Windows 8.1. As a result of this, many users are yet to upgrade. But the software titan...

Fragmentation is the bane of the software industry, and as the largest producer of computer software on the planet, Microsoft knows this fact full well. Windows XP is example enough. And in order to prevent further divisions amongst users of its modern operating system, Microsoft made the installation of...

Microsoft have just rolled out a brand new design for the Windows Store for devices that have the Windows 8.1 Update installed, making it is easier to find apps both on PCs and tablets. This new design, the company says, is built using consumer feedback. And although this refresh was detailed at the BUILD...
