Patch Tuesday, the second Tuesday of the month, and the time when Microsoft pushes out software updates for their products.

On this occasion this includes includes Microsoft’s first ARM computer, the Surface, and the update  is  a “Cumulative Update for performance/compatibility” and another is a firmware update which hopefully addresses the same issue.

To check for an update:

1. Go to the charms menu and select Settings

2.  Select Change PC settings

3. Scroll to the bottom and select Windows Update.

4. Check for Updates and install.

We noticed definite performance improvements, including in multi-tasking, text input, quicker loading times and improvements in IE, including in tab switching and closing.
