One of the more annoying aspects of using Windows 8 is the need to switch back and forth between the Desktop to the Start screen to do simple stuff, such as searching the hard drive for a file or tracking down a legacy Windows program. One solution is to install one of a growing number of third-party utilities such as Classic Start 8, which brings a Windows 7-style Start menu to the Desktop. It provides quick access to programs and files and a faster way to shut down your PC than the multi-step Windows 8 method, which is a bit confusing. Classic Start 8 os easy to use and works seamlessly with Windows 8, with which it shares a common look and feel. My personal opinion is that Microsoft should have provided a Start Button or at least, the option of installing one. To turn a tin ear towards millions of customers leads invariably to what we see – namely the proliferation of 3rd-party fixes of variable quality and some dissatisfied customers.]]>
