Windows 8 Start Button

Posted by Gray Wood in News on March 13, 2014 with No Comments

With new computers and laptops, the suppliers have been shipping them with Windows 8 installed.  For touch screens and Windows based mobile phones, Windows 8 is really good.  But for many people it seems confusing with the new metro start screen.  Wouldn’t it be good to have the choice of a traditional desktop and start button?

The good news is that it is actually possible.  With a few tweaks you can get your Windows 8 system booting up to a traditional desktop, complete with start menu to access your programs, just like in Windows 7 and XP.

BeforeEven though you can show a desktop in Windows 8, before the tweaks, this is how your screen would be. Notice that the start button is missing.  Many users find this confusing, especially those who have been used to Windows 7 and XP.

AfterThis is how your screen would look after our tweaks.  You now have your traditional start button back, with all the usual options, with access to your programs, control panel, etc.
