    Just add Explorer.exe (Start Menu for 8)

    So does anyone have any programs that will allow the shell transfer of explorer.exe? This is dangerous when talking about Windows Shell.

    Someone JUST posted something about doing just that... I didn't subscribe to it though so it's lost in the sea of the 8 forums. Can try a few searches to locate it.

    It worked with some caviates. Since MS removed a lot of functionality from being usable by the explorer shell, there are several apps you need to create your own shortcuts to instead of using the built in ones.

    THAT I think is going a little too far. It so screws with the system as a whole, might as well stay on the sane and stable 7. Adding a third party start orb makes complete sense though and is usually a lot less traumatic to the system.

    [Edit]Looked a bit and couldn't find it, it was a link to an off site web page though, maybe google for it instead?[/edit]
