I can't see KB2919355 in my Windows Update. Should I download all the other KB files?

Hmmm, I am not entirely sure if I like all features in this update. Would have been nice if they had been optional or I am missing something. Like the top bar on metro apps and the small ribbon on the bottom of metro IE and Mail. Perhaps an idea for a community app?

I quite like my current setup with classic shell that separates the desktop and metro completely. So when I am on the desktop there is nothing from the metro side and visa versa.

Description of KB2919355:

 

"Windows 8.1 Update is a cumulative set of security updates, critical updates and updates."

 

So I also believe it that it includes all the other updates.

If any of you took the time to read the install instruction on that actual updates download page, you would have seen this:

 

  1. These KB's must be installed in the following order: KB2919442, KB2919355, KB2932046, KB2937592, KB2938439, and KB2934018.
  2. KB2919442 is a prerequisite for Windows 8.1 Update and should be installed before attempting to install KB2919355
