Microsoft to bring back the start button in Windows 8.1

microsoft windows 8.1Microsoft officially killed the start button with its new Windows 8 operating system, but with all the comments from longtime Windows users, Microsoft may be considering the resurrection of the beloved start button in the Windows 8.1 update that is scheduled to roll out soon.

The Verge revealed of Microsoft’s plans to bring back the button but its will probably be as the start button we have grown accustom to over the years of using the Windows platform. TweakTown wrote: “If you were hoping for a start menu along with the revived start button, you will be sadly disappointed, the new start button is essentially a reskinned copy of the charm that appears when you mouse over to the right hand side of the desktop. Clicking the new start button will open the live tile interface.

News of the button’s ressurection comes right after the announcement that Windows 8.1 will include a “boot to desktop” mode that will let users log directly into the desktop interface. At least give the option to turn off the live tile interface, alot of users would really appreciate that Microsoft.
