Report: Windows 8.1 Update 1 defaults to desktop on startup


Recommended Posts

A new report claims that the upcoming Windows 8.1 Update 1 will default to the desktop user interface on startup rather than the Start screen-Modern user interface

From Neowin:

WZor.net has been leaking a number of screenshots in the past few weeks showing off some of the features that Microsoft is reportedly putting into Windows 8.1 Update 1. Today, the site is not only posting up some new images from a recent build, but it has also revealed that it makes a PC start to the desktop UI by default.

If the site's report is indeed accurate, this would be a complete 180 compared to the launch of Windows 8 in October 2012, when users had no choice but to start up a PC with the Modern UI Start screen. The release of Windows 8.1 allowed people to go into the operating system's settings after it was installed and change it so that a PC boots to the desktop UI. This new tweak for Update 1 means that Microsoft has now realized that most Windows 8 and 8.1 users prefer the desktop interface to the Start screen.
