After hundreds of articles in various publications, many of them critical, the truth is that there’s still a large number of Windows 8 users that miss the old Task Bar and Start Menu of ‘legacy’ Windows OSs.

Many feel – despite Microsoft’s best intentions – that the Start Menu should have been included in Windows 8, even if it was not a default option.

As we have since found out, supply always arises to feed demand and so, many Start Menu replacements for Windows have been developed for consumers.

RetroUI is one such Start Menu button replacement, but the RetroUI suite goes further than just a Start Menu button – it also brings the Task Bar into the modern UI and enables you to shrink Metro Apps into their own window.

Cool, huh?  Take a look first at the replacement Start Menu.

Now take a look at how RetroUI brings the Task Bar into the new Metro UI.

There you have it. Or rather you can have it for $5, which is a great price to bring back some “legacy” anchors for those not yet fully comfortable with Windows 8 Metro-style interface.

What do you think of the RetroUI tools?
