If you tried out Windows 8, the preview/consumer build, you probably were annoyed that there wasn’t a start menu to access your folders or programs like you used to do on Windows 7 and earlier.
However, there is a tool you can use to bring back the start menu! It’s called Start8, which is made by StarDock. You can download a trial version for free at the end of the post. Once Installed you can configure it to go back to the original start menu, or have a hybrid of the Windows 8 and Windows 7 menu.
