Start Menu 8 v18.104.22.168
Start Menu 8 brought back the familiar Windows 7 start menu without getting rid of the Metro Start screen. We could also make it resemble Windows XP among others. One of the options found on the start menu is ‘Switch to Metro,’ which takes you back to the native Windows 8 UI.
We found it relatively easy to configure Start Menu 8, including the ability to hide or show selected items. If you want, you can even disable the hot corners that bring up the Windows 8 Side bar.
In addition, the program provides the ability to skip the Metro start screen when booting and go directly to the desktop, which provides access to the start button in the usual position at the lower left corner.
