Windows 8.1 Due in Late 2013

Back to News

Microsoft has released details of the next version of Windows 8 -- Windows 8.1 -- , explaining that the free software update coming later this year will address user frustration and feedback.

The good news is, the update will include a Start Button (which was removed in Windows 8); although with a few caveats. While you will see the Start Button at the bottom left corner now, when you click it you won't get a menu. Instead, you will be taken back to the Start Screen where you can get to your apps and other settings.

In addition to the button, Microsoft has added a Boot to Desktop option, so right when you boot up your computer you can be taken to the desktop screen rather than the Start Screen's layout of tiles and apps.
