    I used to have Start Menu 8 v1.2.1 installed on my Win 8 Pro and it worked great.
    Then I upgraded to Win 8.1 Pro and the Start menu 8 was not compatible.

    Yesterday I found out that a new version of Start Menu 8 by IOBit was released, claiming it is completely compatible to Win 8.1 rtm.
    I installed it, just to see if it is true. It works. Looks and works just like Win 7.
    Just want to share with anyone still longing for a good old Start menu experience.
    The software is free.
    See screenshot..........In keeping with the new OS, I chose a different Start button instead of the traditional orb.

    I am still waiting for your answer as to how that Start menu is more beneficial to you over the Start Screen. I will be forever curious about how that gives you more.

    Just out of curiosity, does that work on windows 8? (not 8.1)

    The reason I ask is i cant update to windows 8.1 right now, due to my users folder being moved off of my SSD to an HDD

    I was looking forward to the start menu in 8.1, but i guess that wont be happening. Im still using windows 7 in the meantime

    My computer came without any start menu, but at the first update, Hewlett Packard installed a quick start menu application.

    Funny thing here is that before getting Windows 8 I thought that the lack of the traditional start menu would be a hassle, but now that I tried it, I see that I don't really need a start application, despite this looks appealing though,
