Microsoft will bring back the START Button on Windows 8.1

Microsoft is reportedly planning to bring back the Start button in the 8.1 Windows Blue update it will be releasing later this year.

It is also rumored early this week that Microsoft will also allow desktop and laptop PCs to boot directly to the Windows desktop as well instead of the Metro interface.

Indeed, the Start button’s is not expected to be the Start button we know and love, and to be as useful as previous editions. For instance, it is not expected to include a list of programs or the ability to search the OS as it does in others versions such as Windows 7. What Microsoft seem to be proposing is to put a button on the Desktop that takes you directly to the Start screen, and that will not include the traditional Start Menu.

There is no definitive date set for the arrival of this revamped 8.1, but some reports suggest it will be officially unveiled at Microsoft’s Build conference in the summer and so released to the public a little  later this year.
