Classic Start 8 Free Traditional Start Menu Style for Use with Windows® 8
Will Windows® 8.1 Bring Back the Start Button?
Windows® 8.1 promises to bring back a start button to the desktop as one of its new features. However, a preview of the Windows® 8.1 operating system demonstrates a whole different type of start button than the traditional one users have come to know and love.
Based on the preview, finding the start button is not an easy task. Once properly located and clicked, this new start button actually opens a Start Screen. From here, users must move their cursors to the left bottom corner to bring forward the actual start button.
Unfortunately, the functionality of this new button is not the same as the traditional one. When this start button is clicked, don’t expect it to show you recently used applications or personal folders. It navigates back to the Start Screen with live tiles and applications.
