Windows RT 8.1 update returns to the Windows Store

Microsoft logoMicrosoft has reenabled the Windows 8.1 update for Windows RT, following the update having been pulled temporarily due to its crashing some users' computers. Microsoft announced the return of the 8.1 update in a tweet on Tuesday. The update is available in the Windows Store as a free download.

Prior to the removal and reappearance of the update, it had been causing some users to have to restore their PCs due to a boot configuration flaw. In removing the update, Microsoft said that it was affecting less than 0.1 percent of Surface RT owners installing the update. The software giant initially pulled the update on Friday of last week.

The Windows 8.1 update is meant to address some issues that Microsoft believes dampened consumer interest in the platform after its launch. It allows users to bypass entirely the Modern user interface Microsoft developed for Windows 8, booting instead to the familiar desktop. It also brings back the Start button, although not in the form many consumers would recognize.
