Windows 8.1 Update

Windows 8.1 gives you the familiar desktop with its taskbar and Start button, plus a beautiful new Start screen that you can customize with your favorite apps, people, and sites so that everything you love is just a tap or click away.

You also get built-in cloud storage for anytime, anywhere access to your photos and files, beautiful full-screen browsing with Internet Explorer 11, plus an exclusive collection of built-in apps like Photos and Mail, with many more apps available from the Windows Store.

Update : For me it took around 5 hours to download the complete Windows 8.1 update and another 45 minutes for installation . I did not get any options while updating as it was just an update and not an installation from scratch .

The changes I had to do after updating my Sony Vaio Z to Windows 8.1 : Soon after the complete installation , all the icons , taskbar , fonts became quite large . First I thought it is a graphics/chipset driver issue but then I found that it is related to the Appearance settings – TO resolve it , go to Settings –> Control Panel –>  Adjust screen resolution (Appearance and Personalisation) –> Make text and other items smaller or larger –> Change it to Smaller or Medium (you can also check “Let me choose scaling level for all my displays”) .

Still if the Chrome/Firefox are having the resolution issues then go to installation directory of the browser ( C –> Program files –> Browser directory (Mozilla/Chrome) ) ,  Right click firefox.exe or chrome.exe , click on “compatibility” tab and select “disable display scaling on high DPI settings”
