Dwcember 20, 2013: Users of Windows® 8 favor a traditional style start menu and Classic Start 8 software has been responsive to their desires. Classic Start 8 has been providing a reliable no-cost start menu solution for Windows® 8 users since being released by Crawler, LLC last year. The recent Windows® 8.1 update addressed issues in direct response to users’ frustrations with using the Metro user interface. However, users still preferred the familiarity of a traditional style start menu than the deeply buried, hard to find feature that Windows® 8.1 provided. Since the lukewarm reception of Windows® 8.1 by its users, Classic Start 8 has seen strong growth in installations.
This is because Classic Start 8 preserves the familiar form and function of Windows® 7 for the Windows® 8.1 upgrade. By placing a traditional style start button back in its place, along with access to all programs, pinning options, search features and shut down choices, users can take full advantage of this latest version from Microsoft®.
Those hesitating to improve their Windows® experience with an upgrade to Windows® 8 because of its touch input or navigation features, no longer need to delay. Classic Start 8 maintains the way users operate Windows®, easing the transition to the Windows® 8 Metro interface.
Businesses and personal users moving to Windows® 8 can hit the ground running with Classic Start 8, by giving them a way to adapt to the power, speed and innovation of the new user interface with a minimal learning curve.
Available free for home and business use, Classic Start 8 can be downloaded from its website at Classic Start 8 and is offered on many free download websites.
