Once again, WZOR strikes!
There’s a new set of leaks and screenshots around a recent build of Windows 8.1 Update 1. The new version is being titled 9600.16606.WINBLUES14_GDR_LEAN.140126-20 42 .
Some interesting call outs here.
First, WZOR is reporting that after installation, the user is taken to the Desktop. That is HUGE. It seems like Microsoft has finally waved the white flag with Metro and is giving users back the control and the beloved desktop.
He also seems impressed with the transition back and forth between the desktop and Metro, insinuating that it’s precise and elegant.
He says that a Power Management or Power Control button has been added to the Modern UI (Metro) screen. We already talked about that here. What IS interesting is that on screens less than 8.5 inches wide, the button will not be available.
That makes sense for preserving precious real estate on a smaller screen.
Check out the screenshots. What do you think about this new build?
