Win 8.1 32 bit Question


Honorable Member
I have two windows 8.1 32 bit installations. One on a VM on a Windows Desktop, one on a Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2, 8 inch. The VM version shows the start screen with the blue background that I chose during setup and it shows the power button along side the search button in the upper right corner. The Yoga tablet version shows the start screen with the desktop as the background and no power button. I have done all available Windows updates to both versions.

Can anyone explain why they are different? I thought the power button showing on the start screen was an indicator that Win 8.1 was at the most current update level. And I have never seen the desktop as background for the start screen on any other version of Win 8.1

Thanks for any advice, Jim
