    19 Optional Windows Updates available


    Seem to be getting lots of regular optional updates in the number of teens, Just looked today and I have 19 optional updates for Win 8.1 Update. Anyone know what these updates are because Windows Update certainly dont tell you?

    If you click on the "More Information" link next to the update, a window to Microsoft will open (assuming you have internet connection) with the details/reason for the update.
