    There isn't one. You could look in this thread to find a third party application to replicate the missing functionality.

    You could also move your cursor to the bottom left corner and right click.

    StartiSback is pretty good, I just started using it. If you don't wanna use Metro at all, you can still find ex7forW8, they got it at Afterdawn. It shuts up the Start Screen and sticks the real Windows 7 Start Button back in, you have to have a Windows 7 install disk 32 or 64 according to what 8 you have installed.
