The default Reader app for Windows devices by Microsoft is the standard solution when it comes to opening PDF, XPS, and TIFF files. But Windows users don’t seem to like it too much, hence the bad rating. But a new update could fix this.

Microsoft’s Reader app for Windows 8, 8.1 and Windows 10 has seen recently an important update that could improve its rating among those who have downloaded it. The app is used by millions but has been plagued with countless bugs and glitches along the way. Now, yet another update has been made available which tries to fix some annoying problems.

The official changelog doesn’t reveal new updates from the last time we checked, but according to some users, the app has been updated to fix problems related to opening of  PDF, XPS, and TIFF files. Many have reported slow loading times, including myself. While I wasn’t able to say that this specific update has fixed this, many have reported that it has.
