Trending: Microsoft rolls out support for tough federal security standards to all U.S. Azure regions ahead of JEDI contract decision

Microsoft just released this video tour of Windows 8.1, the upcoming revamp of the operating system that will bring back the Start button to the traditional Windows desktop, introduce a new universal search function, and add new multitasking and personalization features.

The video actually doesn’t show the Start button in action, but it makes a brief appearance at the 2:13 mark.
