Windows 8 Start Menu

Are you missing your old start menu now you have Windows 8. Thankfully, so have many others so you do have options to bring it back.

You could download one of the following add-on programs to put it back where it used to be, on the desktop. If you are running mainly desktop applications, then this could be the way to go.


Have a look and see if you can find one you like.

Windows 8 is here

So Windows 8 has been released. What difference will it make to us all?

The answer is - quite a lot!

Microsoft have taken the tiles from their Windows Phone interface and brought them to the mainstream PC platform. There is no choice from their perspective, we have to go with it.


For users, it is a major change. You no longer see the dektop with your Start menu in the corner; they are 2 separate pages or screens. You either see the desktop or the Start Screen - quite a shock at first.

On top of this, many of the settings we are all used to have been hidden under something called the 'Charms'. These are icons on the right of the screen in all applications where the settings are held.

To be honest, it really feels as though it is designed for touch screens rather than traditional PCs, but let us see how things go in the coming months.
