    On the page I linked earlier August 2014 update rollup for Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2 look at "improvements in this update". The "issues that this update fixes" category is actually the update package fixes for the whole package of which kb2975719 is part of. It's confusing the way they present it. kb2975719 adds improvements while other updates in the package having their individual pages are system fixes.

    Anywho, the "Settings changes for Update and Recovery" is that it adds update history to the Modern/Metro side instead of opening the update history on the desktop side. I'm assuming the touchpad improvements are added to the Modern/Metro as well. Not sure, for I don't have a touchpad to know. The rest are general overall system additions.

    The Windows Update settings in Update and Recovery I see now, now that I looked for them that is. I wouldn't have know they were added unless you told me though. That's not a menu I frequent.
    My laptop has a touchpad but I don't see the options mentioned where they say they should be. It already has or had most if not all of those options anyway in the ASUS Smart Gesture Utility.
    I guess my point is or was, that I didn't notice any changes while using my laptop the way I always do. There wasn't anything that jumped out at me as obviously new.

    I wrote a post on this with screenshots, but heck if I can find it.

    Yes, not a frequent thing we do to know. I usually open Windows Update on the desktop side for I have a tile for it.

    Perhaps the touchpad addition is for if one has a generic MS driver for it? The OEM driver program would override it? I dunno.

    All in all I think they'll be moving more items over to the Modern/Metro side a little at a time. We can probably expect to see more or all of it in 9.

    I usually right click the Start Button or go right to control panel for most things. Now that I've used Windows 8 for a while I'm starting to remember where the Metro Only settings are. Can't say as I mind having some settings in two places, but if they start moving things around it will be a PITA.

    Although the desktop will remain and perhaps limited to certain editions such as Pro and/or Enterprise, I think they will pursue the Modern/Metro to the extent that all system settings (Control Panel) and even File Explorer will be moved there. File Explorer will be much like the OneDrive Store app. The Desktop app/portal will only remain to open and run Win32 programs. Maybe a Start Menu added, but that's about it.

    I now read this:
    !Microsoft is recommending that EVERYBODY do this regardless of whether you have a current problem or not. There is a strong possibility that ANYBODY could experience the problem and be unable to boot windows at any time with these updates installed, or have display issues. With the increased use on websites of dynamic fonts that are loaded as and when needed to display on a website, that do not use the default installed fonts, the problems can affect anybody and cause an IE crash on almost any siteOpen the Programs and Features item in Control Panel, and then click View installed updates. Find and then uninstall any of the following update that are currently installed:

    I don't have the 331 or 228 update. I have corrected the issue that I had with the other 2. Should I un install the 791 and 719? (opinions)
