    Start Menu Orb Hidden In Latest Windows 8 Builds



    PC users who are buying a new computer with the Windows 8 operating system, and those who are upgrading their existing versions will have to cope with quite a few major design changes over previous versions of the Windows operating system.

    The new Metro UI interface obviously makes the top of that list. Tech savvy users who follow the development of Windows 8 are still not sure whether it will improve their workflow on desktop systems. The Windows 8 Beta, which will supposedly be released later this months, should give everyone an answer to that.

    Yeah I saw some pics somewhere yesterday (sorry cant remember where, or I would have posted it) when you hover on the right hand bottom corner some white icons like shut down, control pane etc pop up.

    What are those symbols on the right side of the page?, I could see Search, Share, Windows and Settings.

    Remember when you hovered your mouse over the start flag? that's NOW where those settings are.
