Windows 8.1 Update 1 leaks to the web

A leaked version of Microsoft's upcoming Windows 8.1 Update has found it way to filesharing websites. As reported late last week, this new build will boot straight to desktop by default, thereby further reducing the role of Metro for desktop users.

The Metro environment will be getting some new features though, including a top bar with minimize and close buttons, as well as a new shut down button. Other than that, it appears Microsoft might finally be tackling issues with high-resolution screens by offering three new scaling options: 200%, 250% and Custom (up to 500%) to accommodate for 4K screens

The update is expected to be ready in March.
For what it’s worth, it seems the boot-to-Desktop-by-default feature is only present for some people who have installed the leaked version of Update 1. We wouldn’t be surprised if this change doesn’t make it into the final build — it really would be Microsoft’s ultimate admission of defeat. We should also note that, despite early rumors, there’s still no evidence that the old Start menu will make a reappearance.
