Windows 8.1 rolls out today with the ability to load straight into the desktop
Windows 8 users can rejoice today with the arrival of the new Windows 8.1 update.
The most important thing that the 8.1 update will bring, at least from a gamer's perspective is the ability to bypass the dreaded Metro tile interface and load up straight into the desktop.
As far as the Start screen tile interface goes, Microsoft has added in a whole bunch of extra customisation options including the ability to use your desktop wallpaper as the Start screen background and a couple of new tile sizes.
They've also added a new Windows Search feature that brings together content from the web, the PC and the cloud.
