Microsoft Windows 8.1 Professional, being an upgrade to the later Windows 8 version, has more up-to-date behaviors when you run it on your computer. The features that Microsoft has promised and has begun in Windows 8 was fully realized when they launched the Windows 8.1. It also features some conveniences when it comes to the touch-first streamlined user interface.
Windows 8.1 introduces additional new features, but luckily, it takes up much lower space when compared to the late Windows 8 version. Microsoft has also said that the footprint by the Windows 8.1 is significantly smaller compared to Windows 8 which will give you about 8 to 15 percent of more storage space on your computer.
For the Windows 8 operating system, Microsoft already boasts its ease of search in just typing at the Start screen where you can quickly search for settings, apps, contents, and search on the web. The Search option for the Windows 8.1 is even better, however.
Windows 8.1 features the new Smart Search option that is powered by Bing. When you do a search on your desktop, the results are organized in a visually driven page that arranges basic facts, photos, links, and maps if it is applicable. This creates an orderly table of information which was just a sloppy pile before.
While the later operating system versions from Microsoft were time-consuming and a little bit annoying when it comes to applications updates, the Windows 8.1 is far from it.
With Windows 8.1, you don’t have to bother with the pop-ups screaming to update an individual app you have. All the updates on your computer will be in the background, and it will also happen automatically whenever an update on a certain app is necessary.
The mail feature on Windows 8 was quite necessary but has its upgrades on the Windows 8.1. There are now shortcuts towards your now VIP-style inbox where emails are grouped through your favorite contacts, flagged emails, and other inbox folders.
With the Windows 8.1, you can now have your Start screen a shared desktop background. Although this might seem just a minor feature, it can be quite convenient in making the modern user interface seem a little user-friendly.
Windows 8.1 creates the possibility of viewing two different apps on your screen at once. However, the other app will have a tiny strip or the divider line which you can drag to adjust the space a certain line occupies on the screen.
The Windows 8.1 also introduces a couple of new applications which includes the Food & Drink and the Reading List.
The Food & Drink is kind of a recipe application where you can make your recipes and use a webcam to take a photo of a recipe in a book or use it as a portal where you can search recipes online.
The Reading List is a list of bookmarks but has the advantage of its Share Charm which will allow you to share any content to the Reading List from the web and from other apps that support it.
