Windows Update Notifier – An Update Notifier for Windows 8

You know that Windows 8 has so many new features as well as they have already excluded some features from this OS. For example, the Start Menu Button is missing from Windows 8 when you can get it back through some software. Like this, Windows 8 doesn’t offer an update notifier like other operating systems i.e. Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP. Actually, this notifier does notify users for available updates. But in Windows 8, you would have to go to Windows Update area to get the details about updates of drivers and other features.

In Microsoft forum, it became an interesting topic for last year and according to Microsoft,

The reason of removing this feature is based on most of the users’ feedbacks. If a notification were to be displayed, this is suppressed if the user is doing something important, especially when a user watching a movie or playing a game, or in the business environment being interrupted during a PowerPoint presentation.
