While Windows 8 has a lot of really cool new features, there is one problem that seems to come up over and over again. How do I find my 'Start Button' or my 'Start Menu'? With this new version of Windows, Microsoft has gone away from their classic look and feel and moved to a completely new navigation style. If you can't get used to it, or just don't like it, here's a way to get your old Start Button back.
Brett Hatch with WFG National Title
recommends Classic Shell
which is free and gives you several different ways to customize your Start Menu. Check out this page for screen shots.
The other option I have heard good things about is Start8
which according to their website is the 'Most Popular Windows 8 Start Menu'. Start8
does cost $4.99, but if it saves your sanity I'd say it's $5 well spent! Here are some screen shots to show you what Start8 can do.
