Windows 8 – Add a Start Button

Nathan Simon Nathan Simon Profile: Nathan Simon

With Start8 you can bring back the start button you miss so dearly, it even lets you pin Metro Apps! I have been using it, and the trial just ran out, now I miss it, I think its definitely worth the 5$ price tag!

After Start8

Return the Start Button to Windows 8
