Windows 8.1 Update 1 images leaked online, beforeits release
It has become like a tradition for software to be leaked on internet before their set date but when it comes to the long-awaited Microsoft’s Windows 8.1 Update 1,then it is sure to be the caption.This much anticipated windows was scheduled to be released next month but its first ever update can be found peeking from different file sharing sites. It was build three months ago depicting that Microsoft must have made some variations and modifications in it before finally releasing it, however the leaked news on Update 1 gives us enough information as to what it’s promising.
The current issue of debate is Microsoft turning its back to some of its decisions regarding the functions and features of windows 8 in 2012. The release of windows 8 was not heartily welcomed. Reasons: over 90% of users are using notebooks and desktops, and the interface of windows 8 was developed keeping in mind the touch based devices.
Windows 8.1 is featuring few tweaks and it looks like that update 1 is going to come up with some of its own. Additional features are title bar (new and modern looks) for Modern/Metro applications, mouse and keyboard users can now customize their Live Tiles by simply right clicking and the Start Screen has also been enhanced and beautifully modified.
Last week some stray reports updated, that the Start screen is again featuring the search and shut down buttons, and users are used to these two typical features by Microsoft, using it in Windows 7 and the previous versions of Windows by Microsoft. Promoting these features might not be the part of Microsoft’s plan but it’s a good feeling that it listens and values the feedback given by its users.
Users have also raised voice in favor of the time and date features to be the part of Start Screen, however they have not placed these features in this version – dated, 1st January,2014 – but since it’s not released yet so one may keep their fingers crossed, just in case more features are added in Update 1 , before its release in March.
Take a look at these screenshots, it actually looks improved and in shape , but still in the processing phase before its release next month, these leaked images have raised our expectations higher than before, and we just hope that the idea of adding more features crosses their mind.
