    Windows 8.1 Update


    My friend bought a new Win 8.1 computer last week, and Windows Update has run a few times. So I looked to see what the new 8.1 Update would look like (the one popularly called 8.1.1) but I saw it still sitting in Windows Update, but not checked by default, so it was not installed. I read that the May updates would not be installed without this update. Has that been changed, or will "Update 1" be changed to Critical status at some point so that it installs automatically?

    I've been trying to find the official Microsoft page that details this info, cannot find it. I did find one page that says the deadline has been extended from May, out a few months.

    Thanks

    Hello Vincenzo,

    Yeah, the Windows Updates for Windows 8.1 Update would need to be manually installed in Windows Update.

    Might as well install it as you will eventually need it.
