The functionality of the new button will, however, not be the same as previous editions, left-clicking the 'tip' will take users to the new Metro' interface. A right-click will open a small menu including such options as Device Manager and Event Viewer.
Another welcome change will be the start up options, users will be able to enter directly into desktop mode, and so avoiding the Start Screen altogether.
Whilst the update will include other new features such as an updated web browser, better search functions and more personalisation, the move will not impress critics. Windows 8 has received more criticism than any previous version, and although Microsoft have addressed some issues, they appear not to have admitted their mistakes.
When any operating system or user interface is updated, there will be criticisms, much the same as each time FaceBook undergoes a change, however, basic features must remain in order for users to remain in their comfort zone. Too big a change can only encourage movement to other operating systems.
