When Microsoft released the first big update to Windows 8 – Windows 8.1, there were many who wanted it uninstalled. So, if you will dislike the latest Windows 8.1 Update, you can follow the same tips on how to uninstall it. What I want to highlight is that all the updates have been made available using the built-in Windows Update feature, so this will be the case with Windows 8.1 Update. So, you need to know that Windows 8.1 Update will start appearing from April 8, so make sure you don’t miss it.

The Windows 8.1 Update will be available through the Windows Update, so, if you want to make sure you don’t miss it, you need to turn off automatic updates, and on April 9, because that’s when the update will definitely be there, go ahead and search for updates manually. After that, look for “KB2919355“, this is the internal codename of the update which you need.

Install Windows 8.1 Update manually to get it immediately

If you won’t turn off Automatic updates, you will have to wait until Windows will prompt you to install the pending updates, so, if you want to speed that up, check for updates manually and install them right away. After you do that, let us know what you think of the new features, especially if you’re on a non-touch Windows 8.1 devices.

Another important thing that you need to understand is that you won’t be able to update to Windows 8.1 Update if you don’t have Windows 8.1. So, in other words, jumping from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 with Update isn’t possibly by this way, and only by downloading directly the entire operating system.
