A Little Off Topic, but Where is the Start Button in Windows 8?
So you just got a new Windows 8 computer and you immediately wondered where is the Start Button in Windows 8? After poking around for a bit while in the new Metro Start Screen, your finally got to your Desktop, but still no Start Button, or Start Menu as I call it. Yes, Microsoft removed it from Windows 8.
Fortunately, for those of us who have depended on the Start Menu to navigate Windows, there are several 3rd party companies that have stood up and made some Start Menu replacements. But rather than getting into reviews of the pros and cons about which is the best, I just decided to show you a video that demonstrates a free, quick way to get one installed using an app called “Classic Shell”. I use it myself and it has suited all my needs so far.
Anyway, I created a video for restoring the Windows 8 Start Menu for a new membership website I am working on about computer preventive maintenance at www.ComputerAfterCare.com, where I just might consolidate this website into. I haven’t officially launched it yet because it is not finished, so please don’t try to sign-up for anything there just yet.
If you want to learn how you can quickly restore the Start Menu in Windows 8, view the video below. I t is free, easy and very quick to do.
