The Windows 8, due for official launch on October 26, does not have the customary Start Menu button. Microsoft is trying to move with the times and change the interface to work with more devices and be touch friendly.
PC software company Stardock, well-known for specializing in Windows apps and games such as WindowBlinds, WindowFX, and Sins of the Solar Empire, has decided enough people will want a Start Menu for Windows 8 that it was worth creating one. The result of that is a Windows 8 utility called Start8.
Start8 effectively re-enables the Start Menu and allows you to customize it to your tastes. It can look like the Windows 7 Start Menu, take on a Windows 8-style modern sliding form, launches Metro apps, and even allows you to boot directly into the Windows 8 desktop by default.
If you want the classic Windows experience on Windows 8 then it looks as though Start8 might be the best attempt yet to offer it. And the cost is $4.99.
You can try Start8 right now on a 30-day free trial and then get the final version once Windows 8 is released next month.
