    The taskbar will only be available on the Start screen if you have Windows 8.1 Update. Do you have all of your Windows Updates installed to be using Windows 8.1 Update?

    Yep, that's the first of 5. After all of them and a few restarts between updates, you should have Windows 8.1 Update.

    almost 1 gb of update later

    it is my felling, or Metro is less metro than before ?

    the configuration interface for metro, with its old-style right click, seems like a steep blackguard into the metro vision, anyhow, much better

    I also found the WIN + T functionality, weird to see the task-bar (especially on right side) over metro interface, weird but better

    now, there is only necessary a KB29xxxxx that allows to move the windows icon always in the bottom-left corner, to any of the other ones, because that, isn't still possible, is it ?

    Moving that taskbar to either the left or right side on your screen should have the Start button at the top of the taskbar afterwards.

    not sure if we are talking about the same windows button.

    I mean the button visible in START interfaces.

    With the small icons active, when the task bar is in the bottom side, the icon keeps small in the start interfaces,

    as soon as I move the taskbar to any of the other sides, the button remains in the bottom-left corner and with big size

    attached a pic : Click image for larger version

    Instead of moving the pointer to the bottom left corner of your Start screen, you could move the pointer past the edge of the screen where you moved the taskbar to open the taskbar, and could use the Start button on the top of it.

    Yeah yeah, LOL.

    I'm not sure why they keep the Start button at the bottom left corner when the taskbar has been moved either.
