    Hi there
    Any screen you start with is essentially a "Start screen".

    The question is really like cosmologists asking the question -- What Came BEFORE the beginning of the universe ("The Big Bang").

    The Start screen is another shell, but it cannot be windowed. It's a bit like an old DOS full screen game, but it does not do as much. When we get the full version instead of the free demo, it will be a lot better. I hope.
