New Windows 8.1 Update 1 Build Screenshots Leaked

Windows 8.1 Update 1 build

Lots of information regarding Windows 8.1 Update 1 started leaking on the web in the last few weeks. Wzor today posted new screenshots of Windows 8.1 Update 1 build 6.3.9600.16608.WINBLUES14_GDR_LEAN.140130- 2030. The new build still boots to desktop directly instead of Start screen in the case of PCs with no touch screens. I think Microsoft is trying to please mouse and keyboard desktop users with this move. Also, this build includes the Internet Explorer Enterprise mode which will allow organizations to run IE in older versions mode to have better compatibility with internal apps. Also, Neowin reported that the new title bar on the metro apps which includes close, minimize, maximize buttons might be transparent instead of black as in the previously leaked builds.

    Great moves… windows 8 had too much discovery which was a large reason why people disliked it. figuring out how to close an app… made no sense.

      alt + f4, the way is done since… years ago, is it too hard for you?
      or what about “alt + tab” and forget about the App?
      the point of win8 apps its to leave them living (not running) in the background, thats why they dont even close in 8.1 if you do it like on 8.0.
      is it hard to understand that concept? there is not thing “too much discovery” if you just used the logic behind Windows 8.

      I have to disagree, all it needed was curiousity, simply pressing the right-mouse button was easily the best thing you can do here in Windows 8.X, no matter where you are, the right-mouse button is your friend, everything is easy to figure out.

    I agree, I think the update is to please desktop/pc users. I do not see an added value to adde update one to my surface pro. Waiting for update 8.2, as there is more than enough other issues to fix for pcs with touchscreens and tablets running windows 8.

    Make it for both parts – one part for desktop and another for tiles, but make it easy and visible in first second how to change. Why – because there is a lot – not prof users, what I will call simple home users, and they are very confused about Windows 8 system, and I understand them. Personally I like 8.1 and tiles, amazing good and works so well and quick. The future will even be much better.
