Windows 8.1 adds options to disable hot corners and shut down from Start button
| by Anujeet Majumdar |
There has been a lot of build up for Microsoft’s next update, the Windows 8.1, which was earlier being called Windows Blue. The 8.1 update was announced a little over 7 months after the company launched Windows 8, and like the latter, the 8.1 update focuses on the new Windows touch user interface.
Windows 8.1 will feature a Start button with shut down and restart options, as well as option for disabling hot corners
According to ExtremeTech, right clicking on the Windows 8′s bottom left corner earlier showed a quick-access menu which can be used to access Control Panel, Run and other power user features. In the 8.1 update, however, shut down and restart will also be added, which takes away the need for excessive usage of the Charms menu. Left clicking on the Windows 8.1 Start button will still take users to the Metro interface, though, so users who want an actual Start menu may have to install a third-party app.
