(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Expected to arrive later this year, Windows 8.1 takes into account customer feedback following lackluster sales of Microsoft’s latest operating system.
Late last month, the tech provider officially announced the major update, noting it’d add improvements in categories including search, Windows Store, cloud, PC settings, Internet Explorer, apps and more.
Meanwhile, the company is most notably bringing back a very missed feature from previous versions: The start button.
“We’ve improved the way you navigate to Start with the mouse by changing the Start “tip” to be the familiar Windows logo. The new tip appears anytime you move the mouse to the bottom left corner of the screen, and is always visible on the taskbar when on the desktop. There are also options to change what the corners do, and options to boot into alternate screens. For example, if you prefer to see the Apps view versus all the tiles, you can choose to have the Start screen go directly to Apps view,” stated Microsoft’s Antoine Leblond.
And while new info regarding 8.1 has been making the rounds, Microsoft on Wednesday unveiled even more info, this time in the form of a YouTube video. Watch below:
