Microsoft is preparing a new free update package delivery for Windows 8.1.



Internally referred with the name "August update", it will be an optional update made to correct certain problems found so far by the company.

Available from August 12, Windows 8.1 Update 2 will probably be the last Important Update for Windows 8 platform before launching the next version of Windows, codenamed Threshold. Apparently, only a minor update, the package will only bring small, improving the functioning of the Windows platform.

As for the reintroduction of the Start Menu in a fully functional and modern form, it seems that Microsoft will keep this asset for Windows 9, transforming one of the reasons for Windows 8's failure in strength to promote Windows 9.
