Start Menu - Restore in Windows 8


#81
Hum have tried both and much of a muchness except one costs the other not. Classic Shell does ok for me when I am using 8 which isn't very often the changing of the start button icon is the only fiddley bit I don't like having to do as I still prefer the 7 flag one and getting one to fit.

I don't like the User Interface in Windows 8.1.
The Start Menu in 7 was great. It suits people who use a keyboard and mouse.

Exactly, everything we miss: classic start menu, xp file finder, win7 network manager flyout, and many others things that have been removed by putting uncomfortable things. Microsoft complicating things.
