  • Able to categorize tiles and put names on top of block.

  • Start button alternative. Yup you heard right the much howled feature for Window 8 is released in this version by integrating it to previous Window 7 like Start button but it really isn’t like a Start Button.

A right-click on the so-called Start Button pulls up a quick launch menu of shorts. The menu displays a list of administrative

tools like Power Options, Event View, Disk Management and Windows Shells. It’s not customizable.

Improved Mutlitasking in Window 8.1

 

Surely these changes have largely improved Window 8. But the main question arises that will Microsoft would able to attract back Window 7 customers??

I thinks that’s a much difficult question and will require some more features and changes to UI for it success.

 

So what you are waiting for, Just install it now.
