    As windows 8 developer preview for 64 and 32 bit has been released, numerous user have had a try on it. But many do not know how to go back to the Classic Start Menu from the new one, the steps are as follows:

    1. enter Registry Editor and run REGEDIT;
    2. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer
    3. Modify the value of RPEnabled from 1 to 0;

    Note: when the modification takes effect, the Metro UI has also been disabled, you have to set the value of RPEnabled as 1 to enable the Metro UI.

    It's a new interface, if you want the old start menu, stick to XP.

    I quite like the idea of a Dual monitor setup with the standard desktop on one and Metro on the other.
