As I’ve told you earlier today, the upcoming Windows 8.1 Update 1 could come with its very own Start Menu, as sources close to the matter hinted that Redmond is working to make the operating system a bit more user-friendly.

Now Microsoft beta tester Nawzil Najeeb said in a post on Facebook’s Windows 8 group that Redmond has already included a Start Menu in Windows 8.1 Update 1 and all users would get it in April.

As Tech-O-Blog reports, the beta tester calls the upcoming Start Menu “mini-Start,” which could actually be an indication that Microsoft is indeed working on just a minimal design with basic features.

Windows 8.1 Update 1 is expected to be launched in April at the build developer conference, with people familiar with the matter pointing out that it might even bring quite a lot of changes, including new features and plenty of performance improvements.
