The company is trying to fix what it got wrong with Windows 8. The revision will be easier to navigate and enable users to set up the software so it starts in a more familiar format.
But Microsoft isn't bringing back the start menu on the lower left corner of the screen. Microsoft believes the startup screen replaces the need for a button, but its omission has ranked among the biggest gripes about Windows 8.
The revisions to Windows 8 will be released later this year as Windows 8.1.
Microsoft announced plans for Windows 8.1 earlier this month. The first details about what will be included in the update are now being provided in a post on the company's website.
