Re: Windows 8.1 Update 1!

Sorry to burst your bubble guys, but the new start menu and floating metro apps on the desktop are coming later, not on April 8th.

Re: Windows 8.1 Update 1!

Thanks FVB. This is very funny.
Also, for those of us with Start8, there is an update here:
The Windows!
And here's the changelog:
Start8 - Changelog for the Windows 8 start menu from Stardock
Start8 1.40 Changelog

  • -Supports Windows 8.1 Update [April 2014]
  • -Fix to allow clicking on section titles in search
  • -Fix for issue with documents showing in most recent apps list
  • -Fix to exclude desktop items from recent apps list
  • -Fixed issue with touch to close on touch-enabled machines re-opening the menu

Looks like we won't have to uninstall Start8.

Re: Windows 8.1 Update 1!

You can open Start8 or ModernMix and go to "About" and check for updates. That is how I do it. Both of mine are up to date.

It is now, I ran a check for updates and it downloaded the 1.4 version installer. Prior to that I think I had v1.2.

My ModernMix didn't need an update, I updated it to v1.12 a while ago.

Good deal did you read about Modern Mix, they said there should be a update before 8.1 update 1 is released, they better hurry!

Re: Windows 8.1 Update 1!

Just got the 8.1 update 1 installed along with 28 other updates (most for office 2013), seems to be working fine, I uninstalled Modern Mix first, with this update it does everything that Modern Mix did except it won't let you resize the modern apps, its either full screen or off.

Re: Windows 8.1 Update 1!

So, is it really necessary to uninstall MordernMix before getting it?
