Here are some of the things you can expect from the next big update:
The Start Button. Hooray! While we are all for change, there are some things that need to change more gradually that others.

In the Windows 8.1, the start button is back, and opens to a new start screen; that kind of change we can handle.
Shut down. No more hunting around with multiple clicks to shut down the computer. Users will be able to shut the computer down from a single click on the start menu.
3-D printing. One of the most exciting features of Windows’ newest update is it’s support for 3-D printers. When you’re ready to make the investment in your 3-D printer, Windows 8.1 is already set up to connect and print!
