Windows Blue will bring back the Start Button for sure

The latest addition to the upcoming Windows Blue expansion to Windows 8 is that the major update will bring the beloved Start button back – for sure!

The news has been leaked on the Net by sources close to Microsoft, which claim the information is one hundred per cent true. One of the major complaints regarding Windows 8 is the missing Start Button that has been with us since Windows 95 (released back in 1995 as you might have guessed). While there are users happy with the missing Start button there still exists a large number of people who are unhappy with this new “feature”. Moreover the return of the Start button might mean better adoption of Windows 8 – which so far has been truly disappointing.

Apart from being able to directly boot into the Windows desktop, Windows Blue (also known as Windows 8.1 Pro) will bring a number of changes, additions and improvements among which will include Internet Explorer 11, improved modern UI PC settings, enhanced SkyDrive, new tile sizes, new split-screen application options, new gestures, more personalization options and new applications.

Windows Blue is expected this August.
