The Start Button returns to Prime Time with Microsoft’s new Windows 8.1 ad

As Microsoft quickly found out with Windows 8, people actually use and like the Start Button. The removal of the Start Button left a lot of consumers mad and confused. In Windows 8.1 Microsoft is caving in and bringing it back. Their latest TV ad shows off the Start Button and all of its glory.

Well, partial glory. The Start Button is back, but the functionality is now. The new Start Button is just a way to switch between the Start Screen and Metro. The Start Menu is still gone, and it will never return. You can actually use the Start Screen just as you would the Start Menu. This new ad is pretty nice, but we have just one question: is that Alec Baldwin?
