Start8 Brings Windows 7 Styled Classic Start Menu to Windows 8

Few months back I had published an article about Start8, a cool application that brings missing start menu and start button to Windows 8 desktop. Its developer has updated this app by including real classic style start menu (Windows 7 style) and start button. If you still love the good old desktop feature, you might have certainly like Start8.


Though Start8 is still in beta, it works flawlessly without any problem. Installation is just like any other application. After installation, it restores the start button as well as start menu to Windows 8 desktop.

This new version lets you choose two types of start menu - classic styled start menu (enabled by default) and Windows 8’s modern start menu. You can select desired option by right clicking the Start ORB button.

Interested users can download (2.3MB) Start8 (currently beta and free) from developer’s web site (required email address).
