Windows "Windows 8 changes a lot of things about how the operating system works, but one of the features Windows traditionalists will find jarring is the lack of a Start button. Although the button's functions are still present in various places, users may miss its easy click-and-start-typing familiarity. Well, Samsung's bringing it back. The all-in-one PCs Samsung unveiled this morning are the first Windows machines to sport the S Launcher, a simple widget that acts just like the old start button." This is not from The Onion. I repeat, this is not from The Onion.

I just tried this application on Windows 8 and it really is fantastic, thanks for the tip!

Actually, it's really good for Windows 7 too. Maybe I am morphing into a luddite, but the classic Start Menu really is much nicer (and intuitive) for me to use.


Tip: Now add "7+ Taskbar Tweaker" to really make it feel like home.
