How to get the Windows 8 Start menu and Metro on your desktop

Under its new leadership, Microsoft (MSFT) has been busy re-engineering Windows 8.1 to appeal to its vast base of customers who weren’t quite ready for a revolutionary operating system. The Windows team has been re-inserting Sombra Duo Eyeshadow the Star button, one-click shutdown, boot-to-desktop and a host of other features designed to make Windows 8 more like Windows 7, as well as friendlier to mouse and keyboard.

Microsoft is also planning to return the Start Menu to the Windows desktop. And to better integrate modern and classic experiences, Metro apps will eventually appear on the desktop in their own windows. What we don’t know is when that will happen. It might be in a Windows 8 update that’s right around the corner, or a year or two away in Windows 9. That’s OK — you don’t need to wait for Microsoft. You can get both of those features today for just a few dollars.
