Just when the week was about to wine down we have been able to receive another leak of Windows 8.1. Following two leaks of Windows 8.1 builds, a third version has been made available on file sharing websites today. The new Build 9374 doesn’t include many major changes, but one new addition that Microsoft is working on is a Kiosk Mode feature. To get to that mode you go to PC settings menu, Kiosk Mode appears to be a way to lock down a device to a single Windows 8-style application. Apps can be selected to launch at login, with the app lockdown in place for user accounts.
Kiosk Mode is designed for business users, or an embedded-like terminal that simply runs one application. Use cases could involve retail units that customers can use apps on, or business devices that allow employees to run a line-of-business application.
Previous leaks have revealed Windows 8.1 UI tweaks, and alterations to several multitasking aspects. This latest build also includes UI changes to the Snap View, a method to run apps side-by-side. Previously leaked Windows 8.1 builds also included Snap View position changes.
