Windows 8.1 will have the Start Button back

Microsoft is going to welcome back the traditional "Start Button" for its new version of Windows 8.1. Consistency is a hobgoblin of small minds. The first sign of a genius of the highest degree is the unsystematic nature of his creative mind. Bill Gates is an atypical example of a computer whiz that has learnt all the rules so as to break them. He deconstructs in order to reconstruct. He destroys in order to create. Windows 8 was a perfect example of a feature that was left out for reasons best known to the administration at Microsoft.

But with its 8.1 Version the selfsame thing (the Start Button) that was evicted so unceremoniously has been welcomed back. The Verge announced the hidden plans of the techies at Microsoft regarding this invitation to a once unwelcome guest. The button is meant as a key access device for the Start Screen. The routine Start Menu will be done away with. According to sources it will be designed in sync with the Windows symbol of the four uneven square panes fixed at a jaunty angle. It appears that Bill Gates has reconsidered some decisions among the net total options available at Microsoft.

This good change is accompanied by another mini-modification in tow. A boot to desktop option has been added to the alternatives on Windows 8.1 as well. The desktop menu will be forthcoming in the future version. Actually the original plan of allowing the Start Button to be left out came amidst great controversy. There were equally vocal and vociferous opinion makers on both sides. There were those who wanted to keep it intact. And then there were those who wanted to kick it out of existence.

Microsoft learnt fast from its experiences though. The feedback on the demise of the Start Button was mixed. Finally, in response to its customers and consumers, Microsoft is planning to bring back the option in either the 8.1 Version or the Final Version which will appear by the end of 2013. The users will surely be quite delighted by the pleasant surprise of a Start Button staring back at them. Some things never change.

Bill Gates began Microsoft which soon had a search engine which rivaled Google and Yahoo. MSN (Microsoft Network) may not equal Google but it is a strong contender. Every computer user is on the lookout for the latest version of Microsoft’s Windows that appears in the market only to be displaced by an even newer version within a few months. It has made a name for itself in the world of radical innovation and intelligent improvisation and left the world bedazzled by its technological brilliance and wizardry.
