Windows 8 Blue update to be previewed in June

Windows 8.1 update

Windows Blue is the codename for the forthcoming update to Windows 8, the first major overhaul of Microsoft's latest operating system. It's expected to be renamed Windows 8.1 when it fully arrives sometime before the end of the year.

This update was introduced due to feedback and concerns from customers after exploration on the new Windows 8. Its reported that the Blue update will bring back some familiar elements of the Windows experience, including the Start button and a more traditional desktop, although it seems microsoft is not looking towards that direction.

Windows engineering boss Julie Larson-Green confirmed the preview would be available to the public -- anyone who has Windows 8, in fact, whether you've upgraded to Windows 8 on your existing computer or bought a new one with Windows 8 built-in. Microsoft has confirmed that anyone can try out the first big Windows 8 update at the end of June.

You can get back your start button by downloading a free program called Classic Shell
