Hotfixes for Microsoft are small patch software required to fix specific issues with Microsoft products.
However, sometimes required hotfix is not available for immediate download and you need to contact Microsoft support for the download link.
You can avoid this by accessing a secret formÂ at Microsoft site using Hotfixr. Just enter the KB article number for hotfix you need and hit the enter key.
Then select the hotfix from available list, enter your email ID and click on ‘request hotfix’ button to fasten up the whole process.
As pointed by Howtogeek, Hotfixr just replaces the ID with relevant KB article number in this URL (http://support.microsoft.com/hotfix/KBHotfix.aspx?kbnum=ID). Still worth a try for quick fixes, what say?
