Since the official launch over a week ago the Microsoft Surface RT is considered to be a success among the available offers featuring the new Windows OS. Even though it’s not a fully-fledged Windows device and the offer of available apps is rather low, the tablet has plenty to offer and it’s a great multi-purpose device.
For the Surface RT, Microsoft has released an update to bring improvements in some key areas. According to preliminary reports from users, the update is a very welcome addition, making the tablet even more attractive. Like with the update system on PC’s, it addresses the issues through separate files, four to be exact. One corrects the issue with the “Favorites” not showing up in Internet Explorer 10. Another enables WinRE using the out-of-the-box wizard in Windows 8/Server 2012, including a digital signature in Windows 8/Server 2012, and a Windows 8/Server 2012 cumulative update.
There is also an issue with the Boot Configuration Data store that is included in the list of fixes. Following, there is the added ability to customize the lock screen and a fix for the problem that can cause Apps to be installed incorrectly. Performance upon waking the device and when the device is asleep has also been improved leading to extra battery life. Most users report that the overall performance has seen some changes for better and Internet Explorer seems more responsive when loading pages. It would seem Microsoft has done a very good job.
