According to reports, Microsoft is preparing its first update for Windows 8.1 with leaks slating it for a March 11 release date. 

 

According to a source of ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley, Microsoft is set to release Windows 8.1 Update 1 on March 11.

The source suggests that the update will lower memory usage and disk space requirements for the Operating System. 

Update 1 will improve performance on PC’s but will also make life much easier for tablet users too. 

Previous leaked images of Update 1 show Metro-style and Windows Store apps returning to the desktop bar.
