Windows 8.1 //Lloyd’s POV

     There are many obvious changes that are good in Microsoft’s Windows 8.1. Some things, like the pin new apps to the start screen by default is gone though. For some reason, my start screen apps don’t close after I close them because task manager still shows them open. To prove it, when I click on the app again after being closed, it opens up like it was still open, say like IE or news goes to the exact page I was on instead of the home.
     Definite improvements can be seen on the UI. The customization and options reminds you again that Windows still let’s you choose. The nice start button on the desktop is a nice touch and a signature thing for Windows. A great thing for those who favor cloud storage and access from anywhere will be pleased to see that SkyDrive is like a second storage drive and backs up documents and more. Overall, the Windows 8.1 update, that you can get from the store, has many good improvements including cloud storage, UI, and more options.
