Windows 8’s “hidden” start menu

2012-11-22-08_46_49- have posted on an interest menu in Windows 8 which would not normally be noticed by most users.

By right clicking in the lower left corner on the screen a menu of shortcuts to mainly power user features such as disk and computer management can be revealed.

This menu was of course also in Windows 7, but has significantly expanded in the next version.

If what you miss from the Windows 7 start menu is quick access to the control panel and Run, the good news is that it is right there for the clicking.  The menu can also be pulled up by pressing Windows X,  providing one with the option to press Windows+X, P to bring up the Control panel for example or Windows+X,E to bring up the file explorer.
