Make Windows 8 act like Windows 7 .... Stardock Start8

  • Like a lot of Windows 8 desktop and laptop user .... I Hate Windows 8 !!!!
    It might be a nice interface for tablets and phones, but I think that it's a big failure otherwise.

    I just installed the program Stardock Start8 , and I love it! Here is the link ....

    www.stardock.com/.../start8

    It's only $5 and it makes Windows 8 act just like Windows 7

    It really is great and removed some of my hatred for Windows 8

  • ps. After looking at my post I realized that it looks like I have stock in the Stardock Co. :-)

    I assure you that I don't I just love how Start8 relieved some of my dislike of Windows 8 ... that is all ... enjoy!

  • There is also StartIsBack and ClassicShell but after using the 3 I decided I prefer Start8.

    Start8 is highly recommended in my Windows Reinstallation wiki:

    I still don't know what Microsoft were thinking with respect to ruining the Windows experience...

     Actual Windows Manager is great for multiple monitors (but at the moment I am disappointed in how it runs on Windows 8) so I am back to WIndows 7.
