Watch Windows 8.1 Start button full demo video

This week Microsoft has demoed many new features coming in Windows 8.1 (Blue) including the customization to the Start screen, Search, IE 11 and many more. Early this week the tech giant also made a significant presentation at Computex 2013, but unlike on the previous presentation at Tech Ed 2013, Microsoft showed off how the Start button works in Windows 8.1 that is scheduled to be available in June 26th.

In the YouTube clip above you can notice that the tech giant added the support to show the desktop wallpaper in the Start screen, together with the new Start button animation when moving back and forth between experiences, and Microsoft is also adding the option to go straight to All Apps page when you click the Start button instead of the tiled Start screen.
