Re: Windows 8 security patch

will it restore Start Menu?
No? aint critical

You do realize when you when you start Windows 8 you're already at the Start Menu. That's kind of like asking your GPS for directions to a place when you're already in the parking lot.

There's a difference between the Start Menu and the Start Screen.

if MS was not trying to force the metro interface so hard people would not gripe so much, from what I hear it's easy to get to start menu it's just it's a hassle.

I get a kick out of the fact that paying customers are just SOL, but there is an activation pack floating around that lets pirates not only use the OS for free, but also gives the option to restore a Windows 7 style, fully functional start menu.

hmm intresting, I don't know what happened with the Midi support i know us fellow people that use midi devices said Windows 8 dropped support or something like that?

Don't know if that's still true or not but I wont be upgrading.

I am surprised (or not) that Microsoft loves to remove feature that was working perfectly fine for AGES.
Just like win7 had that grouping/iconness taskbar thing (not sure of easy way to describe it), you could always have it like in winxp.

If I have to get an "app" to have system working the way I want, I may as well install free linux

There is an updated version that does the same on the retail release. Not that I have tried it myself mind you.

Start8 by stardock will do the trick as well, but it isn't free.
