Windows 8.1 Screenshots Emerge, Reveals New Start Button

We reported earlier on how the Start Button might work in Windows 8.1. Paul Thurrott has posted images of how the start button looks in current internal builds. It is largely as expected. The start button will be on by default on Windows 8.1, but will can be turned off by users who do not want it.  The start button will look very similar  to the one in the charms bar, but will not be visible until the user moves the mouse down to the lower left corner.   Users will also be able to configure what the button can open, either the normal Metro Home Screen, or the “All Apps” view instead.

 

See Thurrott’s full post where he has more screenshots including one of desktop wallpaper on the Start Screen.
