Windows 8

Windows 8 is the latest addition in the OS family by Microsoft. This operating system is no doubt advanced and features like multitasking and others are really nice. But it do lacks some aspects which should have rather inherited from its previous OS. From the very beginning we have been using Start Menu and now are really habitutated to it. However Start Menu in Windows 8 is missing which somehow affects it usability as users now have to figure other way round for the owrl done by the Start Menu.

I have been browsing over the internet for a while now to find any option to enable this Start Menu. I have sorted out six best posssible ways to get back Start Menu in Windows 8.

Six possible ways to get back our very own Start Menu 

The Classic Shell – This is a collection of usability enhancements for Windows.

  • Completely customizable start menu (multiple styles and skins options)
  • Start button for Windows 7 and Windows 8
  • Toolbar and status bar for Windows Explorer/Internet Explorer

• The Start8

Start8 is not free to use as classic shell.and you will need to purchase it for log term use. However this start screen is completely dedicated to Windows 8 so if you can afford to pay 4.99$ then this is truely the best options for you.

• The IObit Start Menu 8

 IObit Start Menu 8 is also based on the Windows 8 Platform and is free of cost. Other than the options of Start Button and Start Menu it has also got the option to avoid booting to the metro Ui and thus users can directly boot on the desktop just as it used to be in Windows 7.

  • then select the option of Toolbars and then select New Toolbar option.
