New Updates and Features of Windows 8.1

Windows 8.1 provides a more interesting lock screen.

The lock screen is the first screen you see after Windows 8.1 starts and before you enter your password. It’s also the screen that displays after you’ve left your computer idle for a while. In Windows 8.1, the lock screen can do more than simply show the current date and time.

Now, the lock screen can display useful information like the current weather conditions or notifications regarding upcoming appointments or new messages. In addition, the lock screen can even display a slide show of images stored on your PC.
