Microsoft Windows 8.1

Windows 8.1 is finally upon us. Windows 8, which was released back in October of 2012, received much heat over the removal of the Start button and the introduction of the Start Screen, among other things. This update to Windows 8 is set for release in a few days and will not only bring back the Start button, but provides all the necessary improvements and consumer-requested features to Windows 8.
The new update may look and feel just like Windows 8 at first, but there are some key additions that are worth knowing about. Here’s a roundup of our favorite new features to debut with Windows 8.1.

Modern UI Features:
The Start screen has a few improvements. You get two new tile sizes: one small square one and one large one, so you can configure the Start screen a bit more like Windows Phone 8. You can also select multiple tiles and put them into a named group, and swipe up gesture for the "All Apps" view. The All Apps view has a few new organization methods, too—you can view them by category, most used, and date installed, not just alphabetical.
