The world waits in breathless anticipation for the next version of Windows, but in the meantime, weвЂ™re getting a little Windows 8.1 tweaksometime in the next few months. This version is known variously as Windows 8.1 Update 1, Windows 8.1 2014 Update, Windows 8.1.1, or the internal name Windows 8.1 GDR 1.
Start screen вЂ“ Search and Power Options button. As seen in previous leaks, the Start screen now sports prominent Search and Power Options buttons; the latter triggers a menu with power management (shut down, restart, etc.) options.
Start screen вЂ“ Mouse improvements. As seen in previous leaks, the Start screen and Apps screen both provide context menus when you right-click with a mouse instead of using the Metro-style app bar as in Windows 8.0 and 8.1.
Start screen - App installed notification. One of the weird things about Windows 8.1 is that newly installed apps no longer pin a tile to the Start screen. So in Update 1, there is now an app installed notification at the bottom left. You can tap this to jump to Apps and find the newly installed app.
Apps screen вЂ“ Show more apps. Because users complained that the icons in the Apps screen were too big on large displays, Microsoft added a Show More Apps option that bumps up the density of app icons.
PC Settings tile. There is now a PC Settings button on the Start screen by default so you can find this crucial interface more easily. (It was previously available in the Apps screen.)
PC Settings вЂ“ Control Panel link. There is now a Control Panel link in the navigation bar in PC Settings.
Metro apps вЂ“ Mouse improvements. If you mouse up to the top of the screen in any Metro app, a black bar appears with a Close button (and in some cases, Minimize as well) on the right.
Desktop - SkyDrive tray icon. The SkyDrive tray icon is back! Sadly, icon emblems in the SkyDrive folder are still missing in action.
Desktop вЂ“ Pin Metro apps. A Store button is pinned to the taskbar by default and you can pin other Metro apps here of course. As expected, these apps simply run full screen.
Desktop вЂ“ Show Metro apps. Separately from pinning Metro apps to the taskbar, you can also configure the taskbar to show any running Metro apps in the taskbar as well.Buy a premium to download file with fast speedRapidgator.net
