Microsoft Latest News & Update: Microsoft Windows 7, Windows 8 Upgrade Bring Better Improvements

Microsoft Corporation has officially rolled out vital updates for its older-generation operating systems such Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. These updates have been confirmed after the tech giant decided to compellingly convert the bulk of its users towards its latest Windows 10 operating system.

Microsoft has been on a mission to morph its users towards the company's latest Windows 10 operating system. Nonetheless, even with its best efforts, the tech giant has recognized the fact that it cannot force all its users to embrace its latest operating system. Similarly, it is public knowledge that the tech giant has been devoting all of its efforts on further improving the features of Windows 10.

This move from Microsoft, however, has had an opposing impact on the development of the company's older-generation operating system. These latest updates for Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 are not ground-breaking yet they support in refining the overall efficiency and functionality of these outmoded operating systems.

According to Microsoft field engineer Scott Breen, the major benefit of this software update is that users, at any time, can install security updates selectively in the older version of Windows OS. In addition, Windows users will now be able to closely track software compliance using a well-matched configuration effortlessly. Moreover, users will be able to receive and install the company's latest updates without being obliged to download any other irrelevant item.

These software updates have guaranteed that older generation Windows operating systems do not have to give into every bug patch, telemetry tracker, or any other immaterial feature. Gratefully, this puts a conclusion to an accept all / reject all rule. The previous policy left users feeling either exploited if they selected for the former or exposed if they chose the latter, says Forbes. Microsoft has attained this by apportioning its monthly system patches for Windows 7 and Windows 8 separable into various security patches.
