WinMetro Brings Windows 8’s Metro Start Screen to Windows 7, Vista, XP

Inspired by the Windows 8’s Modern interface and its new Start Screen, iObit has released a tool called WinMetro to bring the same feature on older versions of Windows such as Windows 7, Vista, and Windows XP. Windows 8’s new Modern UI and Start menu is more attractive, customizable and better looking than the old one.

It has been configured to launch applications quickly and more easily. WinMetro brings frequently used programs as well as live tiles of Facebook, Calendar, SkyDrive, photos, weather, news, stock and more on the Start Screen of Windows 7, XP or Vista. However, currently it does not have any option for customizing the start screen.

Installation and usage of this program is quite simple. Just install as a normal software and configure it to boot to Metro Start Screen directly from the option menu.

 Once configured, your PC will boot to Metro Start Screen from where you can quickly switch to desktop or access frequently used from program quickly.

Remember that, it is a beta application; it may not work properly on all systems. However, it works properly at my end. Interested users can download WinMetro from developer’s website here. [Via –]
