The biggest concern desktop and laptop users have about Windows 8 is losing the simple and efficient usability of the old start menu, which has frankly just improved over time.
Vhanla has created a simple tool which allows a user to easily switch between Windows 8 old Start Menu and Windows Metro Style start screen.
The tool hides in the notification area, simply modifies a key in the registry and then restarts Explorer.
The app features:
- Runs at start-up, so you can change anytime you want
- Hides on system tray (notification area)
- Special button to only enable/disable old windows start menu (keeps ribbon explorer), requires admin privileges
