Windows 8.1 leak shows new ‘kiosk mode’

We’ve seen a couple of leaks of the up-coming Windows 8.1 aka Windows Blue operating system. Now another leak has hit the web, this time, Build 9374.

This latest build, according to TweakTown, shows of one of the first new features – a new ‘kiosk mode’.

The option is part of Windows’ settings screen, under ‘Users’ and likely to be used by businesses wanting to create a single-application experience for consumers, such as digital photo print systems.

The administrator can set the user account and the application the system automatically boots into using that account.

There are plenty of rumours surrounding the next update to Microsoft’s coolly-received operating system, including expectation that it will include a reinstated Start button and menu system.

At this stage, it’s expected that Windows 8.1 will be released later in 2013, sometime September or October.
