    Do you want your Windows 7 Start bar back?


    I have searched all over and my searching is done.
    I wanted my start bar back to Windows 7 form.
    And here is what I found for you.... that like it that way.
    Stardock which I love there products like Fences and Icons..but now they have a program called "Start8"
    And you can configure your start bar like Windows 7 or Window 8
    Bottom line ..it's 5 bucks and its worth it..if you like the old way and want to stay.
    Some people like the hard way and program stuff their-selves..I like it easy.
