The new Start Menu is expected to be released in 2015
Microsoft may be planning to bring its iconic start menu back in a revised version of Windows 8.1.
Earlier this year, Microsoft's Terry Myerson announced Windows 8.1 at a developer conference, but a leaked image hints at the revival of start menu.
Website Neowin claims to have spoken to a source close to Microsoft and it is convinced that the leaked screenshot is genuine, and it could be included in the upcoming Windows 8.1 Start Menu.
Other reports, however, ruled out the claims stating it as a photoshopped image. The leaked screenshot of the upcoming windows 8.1 Start Menu looks similar to what Microsoft showed off at its 2014 Build conference.
The start menu would appear after the user clicks on the Windows icon located at lower left side of the Windows 8 display, which will be inspired by Windows 8's "metro user interface" featuring live tiles and icons.
