This thread will be geared towards how to get your start button back in Windows 8. It's a pain in the bleep but everybody stay vigilant and keep up the good fight with W8. I will post much more tomorrow as I'm in bed right now but if anybody is interested just google or bing start button for Windows 8. There are ways to set it in the actual OS settings or install a separate program to get it back but it is very possible. Will post more tomorrow!!

For those who don't know how to get start menu back in Win 8 there is a detailed article which covers all the available option in our fellow site "Howtogeek". Here is the link :

For those who want an XP style start menu i recommend "classic shell" and  those who want a Win7 style experience i highly recommend "IObit start menu".

Here's a good website to check out. It's software that will help install a start button back into W8. I used this method.

I prefer classic shell.

I tried several of the replacements and this is definitely the best!  Most of the others are connected to some site that is trying to sell you something.
