Modern apps can be pinned to taskbar in Windows 8.1 update !

A new screenshot of the upcoming Windows 8.1 update 1 shows a new and really useful feature for desktop users. The new update has a new option under the navigation properties which will let you pin your favorite Modern UI apps to the taskbar. It's still unclear if we can run the apps in Desktop mode but one thing is for sure, you can go your favorite by pinning it to your taskbar which makes the taskbar more productive. Most probably, there will be an option to close the apps using the right click context menu of the pinned app. Also the taskbar will all the running apps so that you can shift between them without using the hot corners. This is a great feature which will make Windows 8.1 more easier to use. 

That makes the taskbar more productive and powerful !  A killer feature for Windows 8.1 users.
Still no sign of a Mini Start Menu, which isn't actually expected to make an appearance in Update 1. The full buildstring reads 6.3.9600.16596.WINBLUES14_GDR_LEAN.140114-0237, which was compiled on January 14 2014.
