    Brink, you're GREAT! Not only did you provide proof that these are for 8.1, but now I know about the "Microsoft Download Center" site. So, I will download these 2 updates (hopefully without any drama). The "more info" option in File Explorer for any updates, does not take you to "Microsoft Download Center". It takes you to some other info screen that does not provide what OS the article is for.

    Thank you so much.

    The first link provides some description about what KB3055343 fixes, although you have to go to the Knowledge Base article to find out exactly what it's about. The second link provides no information about KB3075853, bar that it "resolves issues" (what issues?) and its Knowledge Base article simply says that it contains "improvements" (seems more a feature addition word to me than fixes). I really dislike the vagueness when dealing with these updates. Surely it can't tax Microsoft that much to supply a little bit more information?
