Windows 8 Start Menu will be coming back in August

With so many Windows users disappointed with the absence of the traditional start menu on the new updated versions, it had become certain that the company would soon bring back the much wanted Start menu. It certainly cant afford to have such a large group of disappointed customers who were left not so pleased with their experience. We just didnt know when exactly it would happen but last month it was revealed that the Start Menu will return to Windows 8.

Microsoft hasnt been so open lately about the timing of this onset of Start menu but some reliable sources have revealed that the highly demanded feature is coming back in what will be the second update to the windows 8.1 which is scheduled for August. Terry Myerson, the head of Windows and Xbox software, gave a little demo on how the screen would look like and as it appears, it pretty much looks like a combo of Windows 7 (because of he menu) and Windows 8 (because of the tiles).

Microsoft will allow Windows 8-style "Metro" apps to run in the desktop environment inside their own windows and the true Windows type functionality is going to be welcomed by the Windows 9 which is codenamed as Threshold and is to come out the next year. However, the company is trying its best to make this new feature available for the second update to Windows 8.1.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
