The Windows 8.1 saga has provided us with plenty of rumors and speculations, a ton of screenshots and a bunch of official details, but only a select few videos detailing the new features.

And now a new video provides a pretty decent tour of these new additions in the upcoming OS.

Windows 8.1 build 9374 was the build that made its way to the web a couple of weeks back, and it provided users with an early glimpse into several of the new enhancements that Microsoft has lined up for its flagship operating system.

The video below takes users on bit of a tour of the upcoming refresh of the OS, explaining in good detail all that is new in this particular build. It’s a pretty decent length, almost 11 minutes.

Here watch it yourself:

As can be seen from the video, this particular build of the OS comes with most of the features that are speculated to be part of the preview version of Windows 8.1 — including Start screen customization options, multiple live tile sizes, new Metro apps, and last but not least Internet Explorer 11.

For better or for worse, the Start button was not featured in build 9374, and is missing in the clip.

But Microsoft has, obviously, already confirmed that this option will make a return in Windows 8.1, even though it will not launch the Start Menu, but instead takers users straight to the Start screen.

Anyway, have a look at the clip above and share your thoughts in the comments below.
