Do You Hate Windows 8's Default Desktop?

Many people that I do work for tell me that they don't like the way the Windows 8 desktop works.
They would prefer to have things back the way they were in Windows 7.

Even when they have a touch screen interface, they still find the Windows 8 way of doing things inefficient and confusing.

Happily, there is a solution. There are several software programs for Windows 8 that can give you Desktop functionality that is very similar to Windows 7 and allow you to use your Desktop as your primary Windows environment.

My favourite Windows 8 replacement shell was created by StarDock.com and is called Start8.
The program isn't free, but only costs $4.99 USD.
There is a 30 day fully functional free trial, so you can try it out before spending the big bucks :-)

Start8 gives you back your Desktop and pressing the Windows key or Clicking the Start button brings up the familiar Start menu. You can pin programs to the menu and access the Control panel, Shutdown/Log Off options and access the Devices and Printers window, just like you could in Windows 7.

Start8 also supports the search box at the bottom of the Start Menu and brings up live results just like Windows 7 did.

If you do like to access the Windows 8 Metro tiles home screen from time to time, you can easily launch it from from the top of Start8's Start menu.

To check out Start8 and get your Windows sanity back, click the link below.
