US-based software giant Microsoft revealed at Build 2014 on April 2, 2014 that it is all set to reintroduce the Start menu to Windows. The popular feature was earlier removed from Windows 8, which led to disappointment among millions of users.

Apart from the reintroduction of the feature, the company also announced an update to its Microsoft 8.1, which will add some features, including onscreen shutdown button, as well as the option to pin Modern UI apps to taskbar to the operating system. The introduction of the new features on Windows 8.1 will make it easier to use it on computers which are operated by keyboard and mouse.

The Start menu – which was shown by the software company on April 2, 2014 – looked similarly to the one in Windows 7. Microsoft also demonstrated that when the Start button was clicked, users were able to access the apps which are installed on the computer. This also enabled quick access to Modern UI apps.

Microsoft said that it is working with the Start menu, but there are possibilities that it will not be included in the Windows 8.1 update, which will be available on April 8, 2014. The company also assured that it has fixed some issues with Windows 8.1.
