Get Additional Start8 Start Buttons for Windows 8

Wednesday, May 01, 2013 by Island Dog | Discussion: Personal Computing

Start8 has shown to be very popular with Windows 8 users looking to get the Windows 8 start men and button back on their desktop. 

Not only does Start8 give you back the Start menu, it also gives you the ability to boot directly to the desktop, and other features like disabling desktop hot corners.  Another cool feature that sometimes isn’t mentioned is the ability to customize Start8 to look and feel how you want it to.

Purchase Start8 for only $4.99 today!

One of the easiest ways is to customize the start button to one of several that are included, or download more content from WinCustomize.com.  There are many user-created buttons that can be added to Start8 in a variety of colors and styles.

Some examples of downloadable start buttons:

Win 8 Neo Euphoria Yule Rock

Changing the start button is easy.  Just open the Start8 configuration, select the ‘Style’ section and either select one of the two default images, or pick the custom image button to select additional button.

This usually happens if you are using a WindowBlinds skin.  In which case you can go into the WB settings and change it to always use the OS image for the start button.  Then you can reopen the Start8 config window and pick a custom image.

You can store buttons where you like (as long as it is on a drive that is always connected).
