What’s the first thing you think of when you think about Windows 8 – try not to be too rude now? The majority of people will immediately think of the new Start screen, or at the very least the fact that there is no longer a familiar Start menu to work with.
If you’ve made to switch to Windows 8 and you’re finding the Start screen a little restrictive and tricky to get to grips with, or you’re thinking about upgrading but have a few concerns in this area, Windows 8 Start Menu Customizer could be the tools you’ve been waiting for.
Regardless of whether you like it or not, Microsoft is not backing down — Windows 8 is definitely here to stay. The operating system is different than any previous version. In fact, it could be called the most radical change to Windows since 1995. Those changes have spawned a lot of controversy among the user base, especially with those who seem think they “just can’t live without the Start menu”.
In fact, the “upgrade” has created a whole new ecosystem of apps, including numerous ways to add the Start menu, customize the Start screen, disable features like the Charms menu, boot to the desktop and a lot more.
In many ways, each new version of Windows is a great leap forwards in terms of innovation, but at the same time there is always concern about how much change is a good thing. This has been the case with the release of every version of Windows, but never more so than with Windows 8.
One of the bones of contention for many users is that there have been such as change in appearance in some areas of the operating system while other areas remain virtually identical and this disparity can be confusing. Perhaps the greatest cause for concern for most people is the Start menu, or lack thereof, and this is something that can be addressed through the use of Classic Shell.
