Microsoft is looking to give users more choices in Windows 8.1 Update 1, so in case they don’t like the update and want to remove it, they are allowed to do it with just a few clicks.

Windows 8.1 was a great update for Windows 8 users, but those who wanted to go back to the core operating system had a really hard time because the process of removing it was fairly complex.

In Windows 8.1 Update 1, on the other hand, it all comes down to just a few steps, as it can be removed just like all the other Windows updates from the “Uninstall an update” screen in Control Panel.

WZor confirmed that it’s all a very fast process and all you have to do is to remove the KB2919355 and KB2919442 patches showing up in the Windows Update screen.
