Get the Windows 7 Start Menu Back in Windows 8 with Classic Shell

October 3rd, 2012 No comments

I just thought I’d give readers a heads up that you can use Classic Shell to get the old Windows 7 style of start menu back instead of using the new crappy Windows 8 metro start screen; plus it’s free and open source Smile.  You can still access the metro start screen with Shift+WindowsKey or Shift clicking the start menu button.  This program also defaults to showing the desktop on startup instead of the metro start screen (but that can be disabled), and is super configurable and has tons of options to tweak it just the way you want if you are picky like me Smile  The only thing I would say is when installing the app, only install the Classic Start Menu; you don’t need the other ones.

You’re welcome, and happy coding!
