How to get the Windows Start Menu back on Windows 8

 March 04, 2012 at 09:33:01 AM
Microsoft removed the Windows Start Menu from Windows 8. I've just updated ViStart to be compatible with Windows 8.


It came as a huge surprise to everyone when Microsoft earlier this month released their new Windows 8 Consumer Edition that it came with no windows start menu and no start orb. Apparently a Microsoft direcetor wanted to take Windows in a different direction. Microsoft's vision is that all desktop computing will one day be touchscreen... [READ MORE]

I'm back at last with a new post. I've been busy finding skins for the new skin gallery which you may have noticed. One of my favourite skins is the new XeBlack skin by MateriosDragonius, now with ViStart and XeBlack skin all Windows users can make their Windows start menu look like this:

Windows Start Menu skin XeBlack by MateriosDragonius Windows Start Menu skin Ubuntu ViStart by zelito

I've also been fixing ViStart and recoding ViOrb! I come baring fixes for all! Firstly I've fixed the program sorting problem in ViStart 7 now so it correctly sorts programs alphabetically and lists programs before folders (Just like Windows 7 does with it's start menu button).

And finally for Windows 7 users, I've fixed the annoying user avatar bug and for my 64bit users I've made 64bit icons display correctly and 64bit apps open correctly too. Which was a nightmare within itself due to the way Windows handles x86 programs on 64bit.

Now let's move onto ViOrb! I've integrated the new blending windows start menu button from ViGlance and i've also made a built in skin manager for ViOrb. If you look at the new ViOrb below, you can see it gradually blends from the idle windows start menu button to the hovered windows start menu button.
