program to get back the old Start menu without loosing the Metro features
Users who are looking for a Start menu program that doesn’t patch system files and add entries in the Windows Registry should check out Power8 program.
is a small utility that aims to bring Start menu to Windows 8
and does the job pretty well. Unlike, other Start menu programs, this transparent Start menu doesn’t add an orb to the taskbar. Instead, when running, you will see a small button (similar to the Aero peek
button in the Windows 7 taskbar) on the extreme left of the taskbar.
