    Hello Surfin, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You might see if the Start button in the tutorial below may be able to work for you in Windows Server 2012 as well.

    I hope you understand and I hope you have another trick

    You could press the Windows key for the same as pressing the Start button to toggle between the Start screen and desktop.

    This is a good idea (again) but I want this shortcut because I manage my sever with a non-fullscreen remote desktop...

    I'm not sure what you can do since you are unable to use unknown .exe files.

    You might see if you may be able to use one of the programs in the tutorial below to add a Start button, but have the program set to still open the Start screen instead of a Start Menu.
