Another Windows 8.1 (Blue) leak, this time build 9374

Hello dear reader, my name is Carlos, as always we share everything we know of value for our readers and this will not be the first time, stay until the end of the blog post to be with the latest news that we have prepared for you. As we told you last week we read all the comments and create trending content for you, so if you haven’t done it yet, leave us your email and we will keep you informed. Without wasting any more time, I hope you read all the latest trends and see you in the next Clomatica latest trends.

I don’t really care, on the contrary, but at this point I’m honestly wondering if Microsoft is helping sift through all these Windows 8.1 builds to get a user view, if any new changes are worth including in future Windows update. 8.

I wrote about the build 9369 leak earlier and noticed that not many changes have been added since 9364, and this time with Windows 8.1 build 9374 it’s the same, not many changes, but there are a few things worth noting.

The first thing to note is that build 9374 is labeled “Windows 8.1 Pro Preview”, it’s really no surprise here as we’re all expecting a Preview until the end of June, but “Windows 8.1 Pro” confirms also that Microsoft will not use the code name “Blue”, to which we have already become accustomed.

Windows 8.1 build 9374 offers the following changes and improvements:

kiosk mode

Perhaps the most notable change: The latest version of Windows 8.1, 9374, shows that Microsoft may be considering adding a “kiosk mode,” a feature that can be enabled in PC settings that will allow users to restrict the computer to Offer a Unique Modern App Experience – Regular users may not see this as a big deal, but it will probably benefit retail stores to showcase products, just as an example.

file application

The Files app has already appeared in build 9369, but what’s worth mentioning is that according to a new article on WinSuperSite, Microsoft may not include the file picker in the final version of Blue. In this, I agree with Paul Thurrott, it would not make much sense not to include this necessary resource.

SkyDrive for everyone

We already know that Microsoft is fully integrating SkyDrive with Windows 8.1 and this will also benefit Windows RT users, who are currently unable to install the SkyDrive app on their tablets. Additionally, it also appears that users will by default have the option to save files directly to the cloud storage service, just like Office 2013.

Application customization

Another small change is the ability to further customize Windows 8 Start Screen apps. We’ve heard of dynamic blocks having a little download progress bar, but new findings in 9374, from, suggest that users will also see a Personalize when you right-click on the home screen. The action will darken all the blocks, highlighting the app block you want to move with a checkmark.

Additionally, the recently released version of Windows, codenamed “Blue,” has a file that reveals references to Windows RT 8.1 Preview and Windows Server 2012 R2. Which strongly suggests that the software giant is preparing to release a Windows RT Public Preview for Surface RT and several other ARM tablets, and that the next update to Windows Server 2012 will have an expected name of “R2.”

Again, the start button on the desktop and the Start button are not present in 9374 and are unlikely to be available until Microsoft releases the preview version at the end of June, when the company will finally reveal all the new changes that are coming. to Windows 8.1 and plans for 7-inch and 8-inch tablets coming this year. We will certainly see more changes before then, there are already rumors that Windows 8.1 Pro Preview build 9385 is making the rounds on the internet, stay tuned for more updates.
