New Updates and Features of Windows 8.1
Windows 8.1 provides a new Start (button).
If you’ve used Windows for a long time, you probably got into the habit of using the Start button and may have wondered why it didn’t appear in Windows 8. If so, you aren't alone. The lack of a Start button was one of the most common complaints people made about Windows 8.
Windows 8.1 brings back the Start button, but this new Start button does a whole lot more than any of its predecessors ever did.
