Yes, Microsoft is bringing back some comforting hallmarks of its Windows operating system, including the Start menu. That’s the short version of what’s coming in Windows 8.1, an update to Windows 8 that will be out by the end of the year.
“This isn’t a U-turn at all,” said Antoine Leblond, corporate vice president of Windows program management. “We really believe in the direction we started on with Windows 8.”
Windows 8.1 looks virtually indistinguishable from Windows 8 in many respects. People who dislike the changes will not find much interest in Windows 8 new software. Over time, Microsoft believes users will become more comfortable in the modern interface. But it doesn’t want to rush them if they’re unready
Microsoft is also reincarnating the Start button with Windows 8.1, though it won’t behave exactly like the Windows Start buttons. There will be a Windows flag icon in the bottom left corner of the task-bar in the Windows 8.1 desktop.
