Microsoft Windows 8 gets a new lease of life, with the Windows 8.1 update that went live last night across Microsoft servers. The update should show up in the Windows Marketplace and if it doesn’t, we suggest some patience as the rollout is happening sequentially.
We’ve been using Windows 8.1 from the day the Preview Build was released, and while it was somewhat buggy (especially the search), it seems that Microsoft has ironed out many of these gaping issues. In case you’re wondering what exactly is new, well, here are five new features of the update that we feel you might like instantly
The Start Button is Back!
First, it’s called the Start Tip. It’s a neat little Windows logo at the bottom left of the screen (where the Start orb used to be) that takes the user between the native desktop and the Start screen. While this is one of the most common uses of the Start Tip, what is little known is that right-clicking on it shows up a menu with the most useful set of options that were often accessed from the old Start Menu.
