In a move to unify the experiences of the desktop and the Modern start screen, the Windows 8.1 Update now lets you pin Modern apps to the taskbar alongside classic desktop apps.
Right-clicking on a tile in the Windows 8.1 Update gives you more options for organizing and resizing your tiles. As I mentioned in the last slide, here you can pin Modern apps to your taskbar.
To make it easier on keyboard and mouse users, Modern apps now have a menu bar and a close button.
If you're a desktop user who doesn't mind the Modern start menu at startup, you also have the option to switch it back in the Taskbar and Navigation properties.
View your update history in Windows Update to make sure you have the Windows 8.1 Update installed.
