Windows 8.1 Will Have a Boot to Desktop Option


Microsoft has been under the pressure of criticism regarding the Start Screen in Windows 8. The Start Screen has proved to be quite an annoyance to desktop users who have been pestering Microsoft to bring the Start menu back, in fact, third party options to do that have been quite popular.

In Windows 8.1 (codename Windows Blue) there will be an option to boot to the desktop by avoiding the Start Screen, albeit there will still be no Start menu.

That’s a good option considering the “Metro” style is really only useful with touchscreen devices.
