Windows Blue Stable to Include a Start Button, Start Screen Customization Options – Report

New sources claim that Microsoft is indeed planning to bring back the Start button

  The Start button is set to make its comeback in Windows Blue
Tech giant Microsoft is reportedly planning to bring back the Start button in Windows Blue, but a new report claims that such a feature would only be available in the stable version of the OS.

Tech giant Microsoft is reportedly planning to bring back the Start button in Windows Blue, but a new report claims that such a feature would only be available in the stable version of the OS.

This means that developers and all the other users who will install the preview build due next month won’t be able to give the Start button a try, according to Mary Jo Foley’s of ZDNet.

It appears that in addition to a Start button, the company is also looking to implement even more Start Screen customization options, plus an updated Charms Bar with the focus on desktop users.

Most of these options are expected to be introduced before Blue hits RTM, so none of them will actually be available in the public beta. Just like Microsoft already confirmed, the preview version of Windows Blue is set to hit the shelves next month at the BUILD developer conference.
