Metro apps now have the standard Windows-style title bar at the top (allowing you to easily close/minimize)
Non-touch devices will now have the Power (shutdown, restart, suspend) menu available from the new Start Screen
For both touch and non-touch devices, there will also be a new Search button available on the Start Screen (it’s the same as the Search button on the Charms bar, as far as we know).
For better or worse, you can now also right click a Start Screen title to interact with it.
Windows 8.1 Update 1 will boot straight to the desktop for non-touch users
reduction in the system requirements. Update 1 will require just 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage
