8StartButton is an application which allows users of Windows 8 to benefit from the removed Start button. This feature that accompanied every Windows UI was removed in the last iteration that features a massive GUI improvement. However, users that are nostalgic or find the button useful can bring it back within minutes by installing this tool in a few steps.
8StartButton requires a restart in order to display the button in its classic location and after this is done, users can simply start using it like before or set it up with custom features. First of all, there is no standard icon of the button in Windows 8 and a few standard ones are added within this app. Users have the possibility to add their own icon and use it.
8StartButton also brings in a few more customization features. Users can add with ease favorite apps they need in the left side of the Start bar and the standard folders displayed in the right area can also be modified. All of the usual functions that one can need are present in this Start bar. The search function is completely functional and users can easily find various applications and the Shut Down commands are also available.
