If you're dissatisfied with the way Windows 8 is working out, you can at least be happy that you won't have to work your wallet out of your pocket to pay for the fix Microsoft has planned for its operating system.

Microsoft says the revamped version of Windows 8 will be free of charge. The fix is aimed at addressing complaints about the newest version of the software that's the brains behind many of the PCs in the world. The new upgrade will be called Windows 8.1.

Microsoft launched Windows 8 as a way to merge the benefits of touch screen computers and mobile devices. But those who have PCs that need a mouse to operate have found the new set up difficult to use and confusing.
