In order to pin Windows Store apps to the desktop, the rumors suggest that the Redmond software company is working on an Windows 8.1 update that will fix some issues with the current release. As the initial screenshots of the upcoming Windows 8.1 update 1 didn’t show many signs of changes, but new images distributed today hint at some signs of improved interaction between the “Metro” and desktop environments.
According to this Russian leaker, called WZor who has published several screenshots that show pinned Metro apps in the taskbar section of the desktop in Windows 8.1 Update 1. Showcased a new option to “Show Store apps on the taskbar.”
Although, which isn’t a huge significant change, but it appears to be the first change that Microsoft has implemented on its path towards Windows 9 – desktop operating system.
Check out the screenshots of the alleged Windows 8.1 Update 1, surfaced on the internet showing Windows Store app pinned on the taskbar on desktop, giving users the ability to launch modern applications from the desktop rather than visiting the Start screen every time as a shortcut.
Rumored, Microsoft is expected to release Windows 9 in April 2015 with “Metro 2.0” improvements that might allow users to run Windows 8-style Metro apps in seperate window on the desktop. Howewver, today’s screenshot doesn’t reveal whether any additional changes may come as part of Windows 8.1 Update 1, a move to allow users to run Metro apps on the desktop, which would help to improve the functionality of the operating system.
All in all, now at the moment it is expected that Microsoft appears to be looking forward on Windows 9 and is also expected to release and detail Windows 8.1 Update 1 at its upcoming Build developer conference in April. Stay tuned to grab more information on update and new releases at Grabi.org.
