Microsoft Releases Windows RT 8.1 Update 3 With New Updated Start Menu

Windows RT - Update 3

Microsoft has finally released the long promised update to Windows RT 8.1 devices. This is not a major update, but it does bring a new start menu for the Windows RT users. The start menu is not a full Windows 10 replica, but it is good to see its arrival nonetheless.

As previously noted by Microsoft, Windows RT users will not be able to take advantage of Universal Windows 10 apps with this update. In addition, it is likely that this will be the last update for Windows RT, which never really got off the ground due to its inability to run x86 programs.

So if you are still clinging to a Surface RT, Surface 2, or any other ARM-based Windows RT device, you should be able to start pulling Update 3 down via Windows Update.
