Windows 8.1 Ad Featuring Start Button

Things are "starting" all over again

Windows 8.1 is just around the corner, and Microsoft is already readying advertisements on their YouTube channel . In this first ad, the return of the revered Start button functionality is spotlighted. It may not be the same button we're used to from prior Windows releases, but this iteration looks to at least acknowledge the massive changes from 7 to 8.

The 30-second clip highlights the customizable Start screen and the "return" of the Start button, as well as Snap view, which allows you to (finally) run multiple apps simultaneously. And though Windows 8.1 isn't officially mentioned, in the YouTube description, via TheNextWeb , there's much more than what meets the eye.

Perhaps Windows 8.1 will offer significant improvement upon the issues we've seen with the OS so far.
