Rumors have been floating around for a while the Start button would be making its return in the Windows 8.1 (Blue) update; those rumors are now confirmed by journalists, Paul Thurrott and Mary Jo Foley.
The start button will be returning to Windows 8.1, but the start menu will not. The newly designed button will instead take you to your machine’s Start screen. This sudden change seems to be an attempt to help those who have been getting lost on the desktop and weren’t yet familiar how to get back to their list of applications.
In addition, Mary Jo Foley reported that users will be able to use their desktop wallpaper as the Start screen background (although turned off by default).
What do you think about Microsoft adding a “Start” button back to Windows 8?
