Thank you Greg Shultz for the article on how to do things we used to do with the Start button. Very helpful.
However, this is another GLARING example of how out of touch "Managers" and "Executives" screw up something so simple and with no good reason. The Microsoft "brain trust" really blew this one. How hard would it have been to leave the Start button in Windows 8. The code was already there in the early pre releases. I have to say and I try not to use this word loosely but this decision to purposely irritate 95% of Windows users by removing the Start button was an idiotic decision.
I'm an IT consultant and usually recommend to my clients that they try to stay up to date with the operating systems and office software for many reasons. It's pretty hard for me to recommend that my clients upgrade an entire company to Windows 8 when it's missing something that 100% of the users are used to.
Maybe it's just me?
At least one Executive at Microsoft got fired over this. But, I don't think anyone at Microsoft has the rocks to admit they screwed up and push out the Start Menu code in an update.
Windows 8 as a whole is a good operating system. I'm using it exclusively all my personal PCs and laptops. But, they all have StartMenu8 installed...
