The much wanted Start menu is coming to the second update to Windows 8.1

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.
