Microsoft will reportedly release its latest Windows 8.1 Update 2 during this month. The latest report, quoting people close to the matter, says that the update will most likely arrive on August 12th and will be called "August Update" instead of the "Update 2."
Most people hope that Start Menu will come back, but unfortunately that is not going to happen. The changes will be minor, some bug fixes small design changes and most users will not even notice the new update. The "August Update" will be rolled out via Windows Update.
