Smarter mouse movement responses.
Microsoft has made mousing around smoother and more familiar feeling with the Windows 8.1 update. The rule of thumb for getting around Windows 8 and 8.1 has long been "edges for touch, corners for mouse." Those actions call up OS features such as the Charms menu or running app list. Now, though, if you move the mouse quickly to the corner of a window just to hit its top-right X button, or to a browser's top-left back button, you won't see these OS features unless you pause the mouse. In another time-honored tribute to mouse power users, right-clicking on the Start screen opens a context menu near the cursor rather than the app bar at the bottom of the screen.
A cause of frustration to many a desktop PC user in Windows 8 and 8.1 has been the unwanted opening of modern apps when they double-click files in the desktop. The best example of this was the image file: opening a File Explorer window and double-clicking on a JPG entry would inevitably open the modern Photos app. While this app became a lot more powerful in Windows 8.1, Microsoft now takes the more sensible approach of opening your desktop-clicked image in the desktop photo viewer.
There are plenty of smaller changes in the Update: For example, newly installed modern apps still go into the full All Apps page below the Start screen, but now they're more obviously highlighted, and the Start screen itself indicates that there are new apps down there, with a message like "1 new app installed" next to the All Apps down arrow. Previously, a user might install an app only to scratch his head, wondering where it went.
Improvements in Windows 8.1 before the Update also included a more consistent look between the desktop and mobile app interfaces, lock screen slideshow and notifications, better help to get people going with the new interface, the ability to boot to the desktop, a sort of Start button, more windowing options for modern apps, and more settings in the modern interface. The Windows app store got a much-needed face-lift, and the default apps like Mail, Internet Explorer, Skype, Xbox Music and Video, and search also benefit from updates. We'll take a look at all of this below.
Title bars for modern apps.
In addition to getting a Taskbar, modern apps now also get a title bar, just like any Windows program for the past 20 years. The title bar appears when you start a modern app and whenever you move the mouse cursor to the top of the screen. This lets you close or minimize the app in the way Windows users have been accustomed to for decades—by clicking the x at top right.

Released as part of a shift by Microsoft towards regular yearly major updates for its software platforms and services, Windows 8.1 aims to address complaints of Windows 8 users and reviewers on launch. Visible enhancements include an improved Start screen, additional snap views, additional bundled apps, tighter OneDrive (formerly SkyDrive) integration, Internet Explorer 11, a Bing- [Windows 8.1 ISO Desktop] powered unified search system, restoration of a visible Start button on the taskbar, and the ability to restore the previous behavior of opening the user’s desktop on login instead of the Start screen. Windows 8.1 also added support for such emerging technologies as high-resolution displays, 3D printing, Wi-Fi Direct, and Miracast streaming.
Windows 8.1 received mixed reception, although more positive than Windows 8, with critics praising the expanded functionality available to apps in comparison to 8, its OneDrive integration, along with its user interface tweaks and the addition of expanded tutorials for operating the Windows 8 interface. Despite these improvements, Windows 8.1 was still criticized for not addressing all digressions of Windows 8 (such as a poor level of integration between Metro-style apps and the desktop interface), and the potential privacy implications of the expanded use of online services. As of March 2016, the market share of Windows 8.1 is 10.30%.
