Microsoft talks about the new start menu in Windows 8.1

We all know that Microsoft is planning to launch the most anticipated feature, the start menu to Windows 8.1 as a update to the OS which will be released in the near future. The start menu in Windows 8.1 brings the best of both worlds, the modern apps and traditional desktop. Microsoft has not announced when the update will be released to users. The start menu opens up a a more familiar UI which was carried from Windows 7 but with a bit bigger buttons and also the right panel of start menu will host the live tiles which lets you open your favorite metro apps easily. The power buttons are still in the same place as it is now in Windows 7.

Terry Myerson, Microsoft executive Vice president of Operating systems said “We're not stepping back. We totally believe in touch. Touch is just fantastic. But there are hundreds of millions of new PCs shipping every year without touch. We want to support those. We want our customers to love our products. If they come to us and say I'd love it more if it supported this, we want to be a company that listens and responds and responds quickly,”. he added that “The reason we (showed) that work is we thought it was important to share with developers. When do I deliver it? I really don't have anything to share there. We're just not ready yet,”. The Start menu and the ability to run Modern apps  is not yet ready for users but Microsoft will bring the new features very soon to Windows 8.1 as it is expected to boost the performance of the latest version of Windows.
