Windows 8 Minor Niggles and Solutions


I installed Windows 8 upgrade today.  Went like clockwork, a very slow and uncommunicative clock, that is.  There were many times when it said “please wait” with no indication of how long.  When it finally did install, I tried to like the metro interface, but failed.  I wanted my Windows Start Button back with easy access to the control panel. I wanted my desktop back.  I was able to finally see my desktop but Windows I would not automatically go there at startup.  I found the solution for the missing Start Button and my desktop:  Start Menu 8.  Start Menu 8 lets you bypass the metro interface and go directly to your desktop.  And it gives you a start menu with quick links for frequently used programs and the usual Documents, Pictures, Music, etc.  So if you now have windows 8 and you miss the Start Menu and desktop download Start Menu 8

AN UPDATE:  While it worked well, it also disabled my left arrow button.  Now I am trying Classic Shell.  It is working very well.  I’ll let you know if there are any more updates.
