Windows 8.1 Sapphire Concept
Welcome to Windows Sapphire. This is your Start Screen. It’s used to access your files, apps, and widgets. Think of it as your “Dashboard”. In your settings, you have the option of booting to “Start Screen” or “Desktop”.
* Custom Start Screen Backgrounds
* Custom Tint Colors
* Start Screen Transparency Options
* Use “Desktop Background” Option
* New Start Menu is “Pinned” to the Desktop (by default), and can be unpinned
* Start Screen Preview can be seen by hovering over the bottom-left corner, as visual clue slides in.
Windows 8 Start Screen backgrounds are limited. Tiles cover up most of the screen and block off what’s seen in the background. So in this case, what’s the point of having “locked-down” wallpapers focused on design elements on the top and bottom? Giving the user ability to shift tints of color overlays is the best option.
Some users won’t have a lot of tiles on their screen and would prefer a wallpaper in full blown-out color, or maybe even something fun and creative that “plays with the way the tiles are seen”. Some users like to have their Desktop and Start Screen with a cohesive look and feel, but maybe with a little tint change.
This is the “start” of a fun Desktop and Modern UI user-experience, on update Windows 8.

A Must Watch: Re-imagining Microsoft via YouTube
This is a must watch for tech junkies and Microsoft Support professionals. May have been more advantageous for them to release this video shortly after Windows 8 & Windows Phone 8 launch.
Tumblr officially lands on Windows Phone
You’d be forgiven for believing that Windows was a baron wasteland devoid of superstar apps like Instagram. However, slowly but surely Windows Phone seems to be pulling its trousers up and has finally raked in popular blogging tool Tumblr onto its platform.
People who don’t “understand” Windows 8 are either technically challenged or don’t have good coordination with a hand and mouse.
How do people not understand that the Start Menu is just a Screen now? It can run useful apps. It can pin music albums, artists, and playlist. It can pin scores and updates from our favorite teams. It can pin document or file shortcuts. It can pin websites for the desktop or metro. The (2), yes, just “2”, left corners of the screen are used to navigate. Bottom corner is for entering the Start Screen. Top is for cycling programs.
“Get with the program or dumb down and use Mac OS a.k.a Ubuntu”.
