    Old Start and All Progrmmes


    Since getting my new computer with WIN 8, I have aged considerably, I was 76, but I now feel 80.

    I want my START button back, and my ALL PROGRAMMES and most of the editing and monitoring functions I had before WIN 8.

    Can anyone help me. I am led to believe that you can downgrade from WIN 8 to WIN 7, but if that is so, what advantage I would get, at least it would get rid of that stupid symbolic screen that makes feel old.

Hello everyone, I just found this super small program that puts the Start Orb on the task bar. All my testing it seems very well programmed. It is free too! I really miss the Start Orb in Windows 8 and this gives me the best of both worlds. www.classicstart8.com Enjoy -WS
