Yes, the start menu and start button is gone in Windows 8. No worries though, as there is a quick and inexpensive way to get that functionality back plus many other additional features. Start8 brings back the Windows 8 start menu, and gives you several ways to customize it so you can make Windows 8 look and feel the way you want it to.
Features and advantages of using Start8:
- Customizable Start Menu for Windows 8
- Start button which can be skinned with other button images
- Boot directly to the Windows 8 desktop
- Pin Modern (Metro) and desktop apps
- Jump List support
- One click access to shutdown, documents, music, etc.
Pick a Windows 7 or Windows 8 Style start menu.
Choose what kind of Start menu button you want. You can also easily make your own, or download many available at WinCustomize.
Configure and Control the way Start8 works. Set the start button to open the start menu, or set it to open the Windows 8 modern start screen. You can make it function how you want it to work.
Now you can have Windows 8 setup for the way you work, and have a great looking and functional desktop for your home or work environment.
