Try out a free Start Menu replacement for Windows 8.1 Preview
IObit Start Menu 8 is one of the many apps out there supposed to bring back the Start button Windows 8, but as compared to its rival, this lightweight solution packs quite a lot of surprising options.First of all, the application works flawlessly on Windows 8.1 Preview, so it completely replaces the built-in Start button with its own orb that looks just like the one available in Windows 7.
Customizable skins are also included in the package, and so are plenty of other settings to tweak not only the look of the Start Menu, but also the displayed items.
Another great thing about Start Menu 8 is the freeware license, so you can use it free of charge on your Windows 8 and 8.1 Preview computer.
