"Start Menu is just like Windows 7"

February 03, 2013  |  By brucester4

 |  Version: StartIsBack 1.3.3


If you don't like the elimination of the Start Menu in Windows 8, you will love this program. It uses actual Windows 8 code according to the developer, and it does look exactly like Windows 7. The cost is small, only $3.00 for 2 PC's. There are free programs to do the same thing, but they don't feel as integrated to me. You can easily go back to Windows 8 Metro mode with the press of 2 keys.


It is less customizable than other Start Menu replacements, but I don't see this as a major issue. It isn't free.
