Windows 8.1 update said to arrive when XP ends

April 8 is the day support for XP ends. Though it may be cold comfort for XP users, it may also be the day that Microsoft updates Windows 8.1.

Early April is shaping up to be a watershed of sorts for Windows users. At the same time thatsupport for Windows XP is ending, the Windows 8.1 update is arriving to the general public,according to Neowin, citing a tweet from Supersite for Windows.

That date was also suggested earlier this month.

And April 8 is also the day for Microsoft’s “Patch Tuesday,” when it releases updates and fixes for a variety of Windows products.

But getting back to the Windows 8.1 update. A week before April 8, on April 2, MSDN users may be able to get the update, according to the same report.

Microsoft Vice President Joe Belfiore said atMobile World Congress this week that the company wants to “make things better” for users without touchscreens.

Those changes may include new right-clickable context-sensitive menus, the ability to pin Metro apps to the Desktop task bar, and adding dedicated search and power buttons to the Start screen, as described earlier this month by ZDNet.
