Microsoft is reportedly issuing an updated Windows 8.1 version, which will enable users to bypass the tile interface at the Start Screen by default.


The Windows 8.1 Update 1 or version 8.1.1 is Microsoft's another attempt at making traditional desktop users become familiar with the OS more apt as a tablet-like interface.

According to The Verge, the updated OS would have the boot-to-desktop option enabled by default, unlike the previous version in which users had to switch to the mode manually.

Other changes in the Update 1 include shutdown and search buttons on the Start Screen, the ability to pin Windows 8-style ("Metro") apps on the desktop task bar, and a new bar at the top of Metro apps to allow users to minimize, close, and snap apps.

The report said that the Windows 8.1 Update 1 is expected to debut in March, ahead of potential Windows 9 unveiling in April.
