    Classic Start 8 Make Windows 8 Have a Start Orb


    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.

    there are already plenty of threads on this and other start programs. it would be extremely polite to add to those discussions rather than create new discussions.
