    But the button WALL chases me back to Seven until I can find some time to install the closest replica of the 7 Start button Menu? Any suggestions that give Menu?
    Try star8 by StarDock. Lots of options and you can still get to the Win 8 WALL if you want. Free 30 trial or buy for $4.99

    Thanks, Shawn.

    If I remember correctly from a go-around in August ViStart 7 replica Start Menu doesn't allow customizing pop-out Menus I like. I believe SIW2 has another one that does tho.

    How annoying that we have to go through this to get another perfect feature from Win7. But it should make EightForums even more essential.

    Hiya Greg,

    Classic Shell is popular - but I think you preferred Dennis startmenu7 last time you looked

    He now has a variation startmenuX

    Start Menu X

    They both do a good job - just a matter of taste

    Start Menu 7

    I'm in All Apps area of the Start wall but don't see Desktop Task Bar in the Menu items. Where to look?

    You will get used to mdmd.

    He is suggesting you make toolbars on the taskbar.

    That is not what you are after.

    Thank You. Yes. I am a one note thumper. I just bought a Logitech touch pad, and wow! All the features of touch, flat on the desktop, you can even pull screens from the edges instead of going to corners. No wrist moving or arm lifting. A little expensive though at $79.00 US.
    ... stopped using the mouse for most of the time. No clicking.
    I think many will change their mind about the horror of 8 after a while.
    Or, maybe not.
