Click through for a closer look at the latest updates for Windows 8.1.

Microsoft recently announced two important updates to the Windows platform: Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 8.1 Update.

With the current generation of Windows, Microsoft made a pretty big bet on touch and mobility. Along with building on top of the strong foundation in Windows 7, it also introduced a brand-new approach to the Windows user experience that brought touch to the forefront. Since the original introduction of Windows 8 in 2012, it has been continuously refining the experience, and making steady progress.

Last fall, less than a year after it shipped Windows 8, it released Windows 8.1 – bringing a large set of customer-driven improvements including the return of the Start button, tutorials, more personalization options, the ability to boot to desktop, improvements to multi-tasking and more.

The Windows 8.1 Update delivers a collection of refinements designed to give people a more familiar and convenient experience across touch, keyboard and mouse inputs. It also brings improvements for business customers, really accelerates opportunity for developers, and enables device makers to offer lower-cost devices.
