re: Windows 8.1 Restores Start Button, With Twist
I do like my Start Button/Menu but
If you miss the Traditional Start Button, then you are probably an experienced Windows users who is going to be on the Desktop a lot.
1. The folder "File Explorer, automatically put on your lower task bar,
gives you most of the capability of the Start Button Menu. Just set
the default to "all folders" if you want.
2. The ability to pin programs is actually the Start Screen on the
Modern Front End or you can pin to the lower task bar or the Desktop
itself or mix and match.
3. The ability to look at all programs is a right click on the Modern Front End
4. Shutdown options can be accessed in various ways, but the three
fingered M/S salute (Ctl, Alt, Del) and press the power icon works in
all situations and gives you quick access to the Task Manager.
The Run Command can be found by mousing to the left corner on Desktop
(that left mousing ability goes away if you install Classic Shell, but
of course you then have a start button/menu) or Click on the Windows Key
Don't get me wrong, I installed the Classic Shell and got my Start
Button back because it is comfortable for me after all these years.
But, how to do without it can fit on a Post-It Note.
