How to get a Windows 7 start menu - On Windows 8!

Like Windows 8 but don't like the Start screen and want to get back to a more familiar Windows 7 start menu? I'll show you how!

Want to get rid of this?

Step 1:
Right-click on your taskbar and click on properties.

Step 2:
Click the navigation tab and then click When I sign in or close all applications on the screen, go to the desktop instead of Start and then click Apply and then close. This will give Windows 8 a more Windows 7 feel.

Step 3: Open your web browser and search up, "Classic Shell download" (without the quotes). Now click the first link.

Step 4: Download it and run the installer. If prompted click 'Yes'.

Step 5: Now you will notice that not much has changed. The Start button has stayed the same, the taskbar has stayed the same. But click on the Start button, and look! It is now a Windows 7 looking Start menu. The good thing is, the functionality is much of the same as Windows 7's Start menu.

And that, readers, is how you get a Windows 7 start menu on Windows 8/8.1! Thanks for reading and I hope this post has helped you and don't forget to follow my blog!

Peace out! :)
