    "Finally, a Start menu that is perfect!"

    June 03, 2014   |   By mahoubin

    Version: StartIsBack 2.1.2

    Pros

    Easy to install. No restart required. Gives us the option of choosing their logo OR Windows start buttons. Other programs have their proprietary Start logo which screws up my ability to take screen shots correctly for the curriculum I write.

    This program is free to try, so you at least get to try things out for yourself. I'll gladly pay $3.00 for a license. I'd be willing to pay four times that because of what this program will save me in having to go to the office to use Windows 7.

    Cons

    Haven't found any yet.

    Summary

    Thanks to people who create cool stuff like this. I hope a lot of people part with their measly $3.00 and help the creators make a living.

    "Be carefull when uninstalling this software."

    March 10, 2014   |   By JesperWWW

    Version: StartIsBack 2.1.2

    Pros

    Works fine in general.
    Have used a similar utility for Windows 7, and after upgrading to Windows 8, I tried StarIsBack for an month (trail period).
    My suggestion is simply to learn, how east it is to use the keyboard, in stead of the "Start menu". It simply make you work faster.

    Cons

    Be VERY carefully when uninstalling StarIsBack...
    It simply uninstall AND restart the computer, WITHOUT notifying you about it.
    Have just lost two days of work because of this poor programming !!!

    Summary

    My suggestion is simply to learn, how east it is to use the keyboard, in stead of the "Start menu". It simply make you work faster.

    "Have used for One year, completely happy"

    March 02, 2014   |   By rogermanawatu

    Version: StartIsBack 2.1.2

    Pros

    Works well, without bugs

    Cons

    Nothing flash, just like win 7 which is actually a good point.

    Summary

    Windows is doomed, it is an OS , which means Obsolete System in Microsoft's case. Win 8 is the last Windows that I will use. It is like a Hummer, big, heavy, consumptive and flashy, and expensive to maintain. I use Ubuntu on one computer and am saving up to buy a Macbook Pro. Windows PC's are cheaper, but Office is expensive if you want Outlook and Publisher, and every darn year you have to buy Antivirus licences and every week you have to scan, do backups, and things like checkdisk, defrag and updates, all very time consuming and completely unnecessary if one is using Linus or Apple. Bye bye Microsoft, thanks for all you have taught me, and good luck to all you users who need to buy a Start Button because MS took it away, this Product will meet your needs

    "Great Product, Great Result."

    February 16, 2014   |   By Gamerz101

    Version: StartIsBack 2.1.2

    Pros

    Love the Windows 7 start menu.
    Love not having to go to the Windows 8 Start Menu to find something.

    Cons

    No cons with this program.

    Summary

    Great product and I would recommend to anyone.

    Updated on Feb 24, 2014

    This program has a lot of great features. One of them being having the Windows 7 Start menu instead of having to navigate to the Windows 8 Start Screen. I would reccomend this software to anyone. After trying it out, this software is a great add to Windows 8 and I am glad that someone had this idea.
