So with the Windows 8.1 Update 1

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So with the windows 8.1 update 1, does the classic start button and menu come back entirely, or is it some lite metro thing? Will I still need something like start8 etc...

The start menu isn't in Windows 8.1 Update. It hasn't even been confirmed for the next update. It will likely be in Windows 9.

Here have a preview. Don't ask how and why. It's likely that the startmenu is confirmed in windows 9 with ability to switch from modernui to classic.



Edit: Totaly forgot the topic, my bad. Here is a recent screen from the rolling update coming on 8th april.

It's not coming back. Those screenshots are from some future version, not the update that will come soon. I have 8.1 Update 1 already installed and the changes are that Metro apps show up in the task-bar, there's an auto-hide title bar in Metro apps, and there's shutdown and search buttons in the top right of the Start screen.

I must have misread as well. I was under the impression that the start button is included with the apr 8th update.

He's right. Last screen was 8.1 update 2 coming in Q3 2014. You saw nothing O_O'' tongue.gif

Back to topic. Start8 or ClassicShell is a good workaround for now, but prefer ClassicShell cuz it's easier to use.

Haha, M$ became tired of copying OS X, so now they're copying Ubuntu as well?
Anyways, it looks nice.. I like the translucent non-active windows, and the possible hint of a spaces-like implementation of virtual desktops.. About time they got on with that smile.gif
