    Default Re: Start Button and Menu for Windows 8

    Once people get start button in Windows 8, how they turn back to Metro UI? Is there any solution about that?
    It's a moot point... there is hardly any reason or occasion to (need to) go to Start, anyway... w/ or w/out a 'button' that, BTW, is, already there. Bout the only time Start is use is to maybe remove a tile, lol OR, more seriously, maybe, to search.

    X X A,

    Please note, some of the notes you are seeing & answering of mine are a wee bit old.

    Let me give you something current & I'll preface it by saying Classic Shell is 100% unneeded, can use it, but, not needed.

    1. Adding Shutdown & Restart buttons or other Power buttons: Best solution I have found & now use is a Rt Clk on the Desktop to a Power menu w/ ALL the ever wanted options right there. I quit adding such buttons long ago. But, this menu is terrific & right @ one's fingertips.

    2. There's been mention of Programs Toolbar... I tried it & dropped it long ago. Proved to be redundant & unnecessary.

    3. The Toolbar I use & that does help immensely is the Desktop Toolbar.

    4. ALL applications can be reached via WinQ whilst on Desktop. Any active APPs can be kept on the APP Bar & managed from there, again, w/out leaving Desktop. That said, also, an applications fold can be created & kept on the Taskbar. This can have various, selectable ways of displaying.

    5. For me, since a long time & after trying many other, extra, things, the only modifications are the Power menu & applications folder... both of which are nice but, not imperative, in other words, optional. Point is Windows8 can be used straight out-of-the-box beautifully as it comes natively. No add-ins, add-ons or retro-fits; just purely, as is, by default.

    6. Start & Tiles can be used OR NOT. I tend to not go to Start, @ all, once I've gone to Desktop. I may select a couple of APPs from Start before going to Desktop or maybe after... APPs which I keep 'live' constantly are on Start but, whether I grab them before or after going to Desktop is a toss-up.

    7. I'll show you my Start but, remind you it could have no Tiles, except Desktop. I do not have to scroll to see what I have left on it.

    8. I'll show the Taskbar, which is uncluttered... few personal things/sites pinned.

    9. I'll show an example of the Applications folder.

    10. I'll show the Power menu.

    Windows8, pure & unadulterated, can be a very fine & appealing End User experience. Do not neglect to make use of the Rt Clk menu @ the Bottom-Left corner!

    Cheers,
    Drew

    Like I said in another post somewhere here, I personally don't understand why anyone feels that a start-button/menu is a useful thing in Win8.....It's as useful as teets on a boar really!
    The All Apps/Charms/Search function is very adequate.

    We could start a club called 'The Bewildered'

    Wasn't there a song a while back... something about a 6 dressed up as a 9

    I've quit discussing this quite a while ago... but, a wee jest now & again, just in good-natured fun

    Cheers,
