Microsoft's Windows 8.1 Update 1 is heading towards general availability in April, according to various sources.
The Windows 8.1 Update 1 is designed to make the software easier for desktop and notebook users who prefer using a mouse to touch - or may not have a touchscreen.
Improvements include a title bar at the top of Modern/Windows Store apps; new, right-clickable context menus; and the addition of power and search buttons on the Start Screen.
But there is also a tablet angle. The Windows 8.1 Update 1 will have a smaller footprint (1 GB of RAM; 16 GB of storage), which let device makers put Windows 8.1 with the update on smaller, cheaper tablets.Source article
