Thread: Old start menu in Windows 8 consumer preview ?

  1. #1

    Old start menu in Windows 8 consumer preview ?

    HI, i found many articles here related to Window 8 CP about various troubleshootings but i dint found any regarding Start menu.




    Actually am sick of the start page in this new OS. Actually am a Windows 7 User since along time and i love its Start menu with search field.

    I tried to find out if there is any option for the getting the same in windows 8, but unsuccessful. Is there ant possible way i can get the old start menu like windows 7 in this new release ?

    Well, there is no such option built-in in W8 to get the previous / old start menu like windows 7 as Microsoft has just replaced it. But there is nothing to worry. You can simply do it with and application called "Start8". It is a product of StarDock that gave us many applications earlier also to change our logon screens in vista and XP.

    So, just download Start8 from here and enjoy.

    Thats correct BPati.. even i changed my Start Menu in W8 with the same. See how it looks now:


    Its very easy to use. After installing when you click the lower left corner of your desktop, instead of going to the Start screen, it takes you to the Start8 interface. You also get the search filed like you were having in Windows 7.
