Windows 8 Start Menu Switcher toggles Metro/Classic start menu

imageThe 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
