Earlier this month, some screenshots of the upcoming Windows 8.1 Update 1 surfaced on the internet, showing what it could possibly introduce, including the ability to pin modern Windows Store apps to the desktop.
Recently, some more screenshots of the Windows 8.1 Update 1 emerged from Russian shores, and from the same Microsoft leaker known as Wzor. The latest round of screenshots show that boot to desktop is enabled by default and note the Metro UI showing you the start screen.
The screenshot also reveals that there will be a power management button on the start screen to help users shutdown, restart or put the computer to sleep with a few simple clicks. Previously, users had to scratch there brain and open up the charms bar to turn it off, which was a big hassle and many users didn’t like the fact that it requires that much effort.
Other features displayed in the screenshot is the renaming of SkyDrive to OneDrive — Skydrive is now renamed to OneDrive. In addition to that, there’s a close button in the modern Windows Store applications, a feature which is missing from Windows 8.1, and the user usually has to close the app using the traditional CTRL+F4 button.
The update is rumored to launch on March 11, if the sources of the well-connected Mary Jo Foley is correct. Additionally, there’s a possibility that Microsoft will also share some details about the upcoming Windows 9 Threshold at the annual BUILD conference in April.
We’ll update you as soon as the Windows 8.1 Update 1 is released. Visit the Wzor link below to see the complete set of screenshots.Filed Under: Technology News, Top News
