When you install the program, the start button returns to its place in the lower left-hand corner of the screen where it belongs. Clicking on the button reveals everything you'd expect: recent programs, documents, images, videos, computer shutdown, etc.
In addition to all that, StartW8 allows you to make some other configurations to the start menu. Among those is the language as well as exactly which elements you'd like to be displayed when you open the menu.
StartW8 is the ideal application for all of those users who changed to Windows 8 but still miss the classic start button. This way, you'll always have it close by. And, best of all, you don't have to pay anything - it's completely free.
