At some point, you just shake your head. I’ve never seen so many utilities created to help “fix” an Operating System.

OK, here we go again.

IObit, the world’s leading system utility software provider, announced a brand new and free system tool that will enable Windows 8 users to get themselves better familiarized with the new Microsoft operating system.

IObit StartMenu8 provides a quick and convenient way for Windows 8 users to bring back both the Windows Start Menu and the Start button, while also disabling things like Windows 8 Hot Corners, the Metro Sidebar and hot keys. By giving users more control over their Start Menu, StartMenu8 aims to help users feel more comfortable while using Windows 8.

Blah Blah Blah…

Go check it out if you’re interested.

There are so many of them, it’s gotten really old.

The link’s here.

    There are two things I. Have to agree with…

    1) I cannot do anything else but shake my head… About all this rĂ©sistance to change.
    2) And you are totally right:
    the topic has gotten really old.

      I know. I’m like how many of these tools can i keep talking about?

      Also, if there are so many of these tools, doesn’t that mean…..

    Really whats the point of it! I like windows 8 As it is,why change it! if people want the start menu go use Windows 7!!

    • WillyThePooh

      I agree. If they want the start button, start menu and boot directly into desktop, then why not simply buy win7 PC. It’s not that you can’t find one in BestBuy.

      • Roman

        Because Win 7 PC’s are not for sale any longer.

    There was a time when this blog was promoting one (paid for?) start menu replacement in partcular, so why the change of tune?

    Personally, I still hate the Windows 8 Start screen on my desktop PC but I like other aspects of it, so tools like this are great.

      Good question. The change of tune comes from the fact that if there are 20 of these on the market, it should tell the OS vendor something.

      Just sayin…
