Windows 8/8.1/10 Start Menu & Desktop Help

 

 

Still miss the classic Start menu in Windows 8/8.1&10? Never fear, alternatives are here.

Microsoft lopped off the Start menu in Windows 8 to force people to use the Start screen. And I'll admit it, the Start screen does offers several benefits.

Live Tiles can clue you in to the latest e-mails, appointments, news, and other information. You can easily search for any app, setting, or file just by typing its name.

 

But I still find the folder-structured Start menu the quickest and easiest way to launch any application when I'm already working in the desktop. And Microsoft seems to have finally realized that many other users do as well. Microsoft has included a version of the start menu in Windows 8.1, however it only functions with the tiles and does not restore your computer to the desktop mode that you are so familiar with.

In the meantime, though, the only option for those of you who crave the good, old Start menu in Windows 8 or 8.1 is to use a Start menu alternative. Ozark Computer Clinic has several options available to get you back up and running with your desktop and start menu! Contact us today to find out what we can do for you!
