Sneek peek at windows 8.1 update 1!!!

The Windows 8.1 update will be launched next month and everything already seems to be in place for this big announcement. We have already got some clue on the new features which have been leaked through some screenshots and it looks like the new update will be bringing good news for the Windows 8 fans. This one has to be quite good since many people are still in favor of the user friendly Windows 7. The common features to be improved will be the usage of keyboard and mouse.

The new title bar would be quite the thing and the interesting part is that users will be able to close, minimize and snap apps side by side with the help of a mouse. The placement of the bar at the top of the Metro apps allows easy navigation for the apps. Along with this, a new search button is also in place and the Start screen is going to give the new shutdown button as well.

The shutdown might become the most favorite updated feature because to everyone’s relief, it brings back the good old options for sleep, restart and shutdown. There is one more surprise for you on the Start screen; the Live titles can now be resized and unpinned.
