    Windows 8.1 U1 features


    I installed the Update 1 on both my desktop and my 8.1 (non RT) tablet. The most important thing for me was the new shortcut on the touch menu for easily accessing reboot/standby/poweroff. It's there on my desktop, but not on my tablet... Nice one Microsoft. I also cant see an option to activate it.

    Does anyone know if there's a registry option I can set it for enabled? The same goes for the new feature btw to open apps in window mode, that doesnt seem to be enabled on the tablet, where I still want to use it, because it's a full Windows, not RT.

    Also, how do I open apps in non full-screen window mode?

    I'm having the same exact problem on my tablet. As far as I can tell, it's a configuration that tells the OS that it's on a tablet.

    Yes, thought the same, which is absolutely crazily stupid. Why would I want the option not have on a tablet?? I want it so I can easily poweroff my tablet via menu...
