Microsoft’s Windows 8.1 update will reportedly allow users to boot straight to their desktops. The Verge quotes inside sources claiming that the operating system upgrade will enable users to drop the controversial tiled interface in favour of the traditional load-up screen.

Leaked builds of the operating system – codenamed Windows Blue – suggest that users will also be able to resize the titles to create smaller icons and run two apps at once in split-screen mode.

Windows 8.1 is said to feature improved touchscreen functionality with enhanced sensitivity and better support for first-party applications.

The PC market went through its steepest decline in recent years during the first three months of 2013, with users’ reluctance to adopt Windows 8 cited as a contributing factor. Windows 8.1 is expected to be formally announced at Microsoft’s Build developer conference in June.
