StartIsBack brings Start Menu to Windows 8 with Customization Options

One of the main features of Windows 8 is the new start screen with metro UI tiles and options. While many users accepted the new start screen which does not have the start menu, others did not find it easy. We have covered many apps Pokki, Start8, Classic Shell etc to bring back the start menu in Windows 8. Each app has its own features and interface which gets back the traditional start menu.

StartIsBack is another app for Windows 8 which gets back the classic start menu of Windows 7 to Windows 8 with tons of features and customization options. When you install StartIsBack, you can install it for one user or for all users using the PC. This is pretty useful if you have multiple users on the PC.

  1. I still prefer Classic Shell. It is the best one, most customizable, most powerful and free, open source. I donated to it. It’s also the oldest Start menu around.
