Microsoft has indeed brought back the Start button in Windows 8.1, but instead of launching a Start Menu, it only gets users to the same Start screen included in the company’s modern OS.If this is the kind of Start button you’d also want on your Windows 8 computer, but you’re not planning to make the move to 8.1, here’s a simple and freeware app that might come in handy.
Simply called Start Menu Button, this tiny program brings a small button on your Windows 8 taskbar that lets you launch the Start screen with just a single click.
It’s based on the same behavior as the Start button included in 8.1 and works on both 32- and 64-bit versions of the operating system. It does nothing else than take you instantly to the Start screen.
