Gigabyte Smart Switch Bring Missing Power & Boot to Desktop Options to Windows 8

Microsoft made a mistake when it replaced the Start menu with the touch focused Start screen on Windows 8, especially on desktop PCs and standard laptops. Many users annoyed with the new Windows 8 user interface. That is why several third party vendors come up with apps to bring the Start button to Windows 8.

I had mentioned about several free apps in previous articles such as Classic Shell that to bring the Start Menu that we all knew and loved to Windows 8. Here is a new app from Gigabyte called Smart Switch, which brings the Windows Desktop, back by boot-to-desktop function.

Smart Switch docks your start- up options on your task bar. This makes for easy access to all your power options right from the desktop. Also, you can choose your default Home Screen, whether it be the Windows 8 UI mode or Desktop mode.

Gigabyte Smart Switch works on any computer running on Windows 8 OS and simple to use. Download (link below) and run the app, choose your default Home Screen (Modern UI or Desktop UI) and confirm the settings. That’s all.

Gigabyte Smart Switch can be downloaded from developer’s website for free
