    No RPEnabled listing in Explorer registry--for Windows 8 to 7 workarou


    I'm not sure this is the right forum--but in trying to retrieve my Windows 7 Start button, I've followed the registry change workaround--but when I reach the "Explorer" listing, there's no RPEnabled listed in the right-hand column. What gives?

    Hello Cruce, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    So far in the Windows 8 CP release, you will not be able to disable the Metro UI like in the previous releases.
