An itemized list of changes in 8.1 for Enterprise (public preview June 26, 2013)



Of particular importance to desktop users:

Modern UI experience

  • Variable, continuous size of snap views - You have more ways to see multiple apps on the screen at once. You can resize apps to nearly infinite sized windows, share the screen between two apps, or have up to three apps on each monitor depending on resolution.
  • Boot to Desktop - we have made configuration options available which will allow you to boot directly to the desktop in Windows 8.1.
  • Desktop and Start screen – Improvements have been made to better support users who prefer a mouse and keyboard experience to access applications.
