    Windows 8.1 August Update to Launch Tomorrow

    BTW: What exactly does this do? "allow right-clicks on the touchpad; double-tap and drag "

    'suppose it replaces the the need for left click when dragging?

    Hoping "precision touchpad improvements" allows one to enable side-swipes without it bringing up Charms...

    Gosh, Windows Updates still nothing. I am waiting for it so see, how much of this 170 MB is already installed. If it is a collection of previous fixes, it should show less, if it is a whole new thing, it should be the same.

    EDIT: So it looks, it is an update after of all, if not 2, then at least 1 and 3/4.

    I'm back, installed OK, nothing broken that I can tell anyway. I'm using a T650 Touch Pad, not sure if anything was added to its functionality. It's got so many 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 finger swipes I can't keep track of what they all do anyway.

    Just found this. @4:40 PM August 2014 update rollup for Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2

    This is what I found that it does. Looks like it mostly not for desktops.

    Install this update to resolve issues in Windows. Precision touchpad improvements ? three new end-user settings have been added: Leave touch pad on when a mouse is connected; allow right-clicks on the touchpad; double-tap and drag.? Miracast Receive ? exposes a set of Wi-Fi direct APIs for Independent Vendor (IHV) drivers or OEM drivers to develop Windows 32-bit applications that run on all supported x86-based or x64-based versions of Windows 8.1, enabling the as a Miracast receiver.? Minimizing login for SharePoint Online ? reduces the number of prompts with federated use in accessing SharePoint Online sites. If you select the ?Keep me signed in? check box when you log on for the first time, you will not see prompts for successive access to that SharePoint Online site.Windows 8.1 update is not mandatory, but everyone running Windows 8.1 is strongly recommended to install it as soon as possible.
