No Start Screen for desktop users in Windows 9, the Start Menu 'is' Start

The Start Menu isn't based off the old Windows 7 Start Menu, Microsoft has gone above and beyond and re-thought the Menu entirely. It will act as both a menu and a screen in Windows 9, with the ability to full-screen the menu to get a similar Start Screen experience. Thurrott then continues by reaffirming what we've already covered, claiming that it will obviously depend on your hardware, whether it be a tablet or not.

If it is a tablet, you'll get the Start Screen. If it's a desktop, you'll get the desktop instead. It's pretty simple.

So to clarifty. Desktop users won't have a Start Screen. They'll have a Start Menu which can be full screened to act like a Start Screen instead. Tablet users do not fear however, because a Start Screen will still be available for you. Hybrid devices like the Surface are expected to act accordingly, depending on whether or not you've got a keyboard connected. More on that in the future.

Download OneDrive app for windows 8.1

 
There are a lot of great features in Windows 8.1 that make it well worth using, and Update 1 expected in the coming weeks sounds promising too.

But for traditional PC users with big hard drives one thing that may not be so great is how Windows 8.1 works with SkyDrive.

 Microsoft relaunched its cloud-storage service SkyDrive as OneDrive today. As part of the rebranding, the software giant updated its apps available across various platforms.

For those of you who have the SkyDrive client installed on your devices, Microsoft says that it will automatically get updated over time. But again, you can cut to the chase by visiting OneDrive’s download page, from where you can get the appropriate version for your device.

If you are more into Windows Phone 8.1 leaks in the past couple of days, time to move to Windows 8.1 Update 1. We already saw the changes that are coming in Windows 8.1 Update 1 in which Microsoft is trying to address the concerns of keyboard/mouse users of Windows 8.1. Some of the most notable changes include the ability to pin Windows Store apps in taskbar.

This time, famous Windows leaker WZor has posted a screenshot showing that the development process of Windows 8.1 Update 1 build 9600.17019 has been completed, so this version is most likely under testing right now.

It's highly likely that as this is an RTM escrow build, there will be no changes feature wise. The Windows Team will pretty much be all focused on ironing out bug fixes from now until launch in April.

Drifting is the act of maneuvering a vehicle through corners at speeds and angles that exceed the vehicle’s grip. A drift is when a driver performs a controlled slide through corners while adhering to the racing line. Drifting involves fast cars, super skilled drivers and hardcore fans.

It’s a combination of driving skill, style and showmanship. It’s all about loss of the rear wheel traction while keeping the race car in total control. Drifting is so popular because it brings all the best aspects of motor sports into one package. Highly skilled drivers control a high powered street car past its limit, sideways at high speed, burning rubber. It can’t get any better!

Windows 8.1 Update 1 build 9600.16610 2014 MSU files KB2919355 and KB2919442 for x64/x86

Windows 8.1 Update 1 was reportedly delayed by Microsoft until April, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that the company would stop work on the first Windows 8.1 pack of improvements .As Redmond continues to improve the update, more leaks are reaching the web
Windows 8.1 Update 1 had hit RTM Escrow, which means development has stopped and finalizing has begun. Everything is now in place for Update 1 and no new features are set to be added.


The build is 9600.16610 and the MSU leak requires you to perform an update to an existing, fresh RTM install with all applicable updates applied.
Windows 8.1 Update 1 build 9600.16610 MSU leaked by WZOR (both 32 and 64-bit) and shared in some p2p websites as you can see below.



At the moment, the leak pertains to x86 and x64. There will likely be a separate update for ARM platforms. Update 1 for Windows 8.1 features a host of minor tweaks and improvements, including updated taskbar functionality, Modern UI changes and much more.

While details are very scarce for the time being, we should expect only minor changes as compared to the first leak that went online last week, as Microsoft is most likely trying to improve performance and fix some of the bugs in the first builds.

Installing Windows 8.1 Update 1 MSU files to Windows 8.1 RTM

We earlier reported that the most-recent build of Windows 8.1 Spring Update 1 has been leaked and now a new windows 8.1 update 1 build 6.3.9600.16608.WINBLUES14_GDR_LEAN.140130-2030 coming soon, the screenshots of the same build have leaked in the wild. The screenshots doesn’t show many new features as compared to the last leaked build.
these are some pictures of installing Windows 8.1 Update 1 MSU files to Windows 8.1 RTM published by Wzor today.

06 February, 2014

Windows 8.1 Update is available as an MSU files build and finale build coming soon

Windows 8.1 Update 1 might be released in April instead of March, according to a report published on Tuesday, a couple of days after the leak of a beta build showing changes in the update that would benefit users accustomed to the traditional, non-”Modern” PC environment. Meanwhile, it’s also conceivable that the performance of Microsoft’s built-in Defender anti-malware software will improve by then.


While we have published screenshots of Build 2030 6.3.9600.16608.WINBLUES14_GDR_LEAN.140130- WZor got more important information. It turns out that Bill Gates maybe gave MSU files , perhaps the first Escrow RTM Build 6.3.9600.16610.WINBLUE_S14.140201- 1007.


Windows8.1-KB2919355-x86.msu
Windows8.1-KB2919442-x86.msu
Windows8.1-KB2919355-x64.msu
Windows8.1-KB2919442-x64.msu


We're hearing that a leak of Windows 8.1 Update 1 build 9600.16610 is set to leak within the next day. This build is RTM escrow, and will be leaked in MSU form meaning it can only be applied to a system which has Windows 8.1 RTM installed. We recommend not installing the leak as RTM escrow is 'NOT FINAL'.

• Rollup A (KB2883200)
• Rollup B (KB2884846)
• November Rollup (KB2887595)
• December Rollup (KB2903939)
• January Rollup (KB2911106)

The source states that the build should leak in the near future but don’t hold your breath as these leaks can take some time to develop.

Windows 8.1 Update 1 build 9600.16608 screenshots

 After numerous screenshots illustrating some of new features included in the update, the Windows 8.1 Update 1 is now available on various file sharing and P2P sites.

The ISO image is the build 9600.16596. WINBLUES14_GDR_LEAN. 140114 0237, a 64-bit version of Windows 8.1, compiled on January 14, 2014.

Another build of Windows 8.1 Update 1 has leaked in the form of screenshots, which was compiled on January 30. This is a more recent build than the one which was leaked a few days ago, which means boot to desktop is on by default. This has been the case for two pre-release builds now, so is this going to be an official change?

The build includes all changes made by the software maker from Redmond to simplify the use of the operating system for users who prefer to use a keyboard and mouse. Moreover, you can also see the changes that make less sharp transition between the desktop and modern interfaces.




Windows 8.1 Update 1 Build 9600.16608 is reported to have been compiled recently, and even if the leak does not happen soon.
Speaking of near futures, Microsoft has, as you may have read, delayed this new version of the operating system to April. It was earlier scheduled to be launched in March.
