[How to] Install Start menu in Windows 8- Windows 8 Tricks

Windows 8 doesn't have start menu , where we have used start menu from Windows 95 ( or older ) to latest Windows 7. Every Windows are very familiar with Start menu.But in Windows 8 we miss Start menu. Start menu is replaced in the new Microsoft  Metro Desktop/ Modern Desktop design. It will make some difficult to it's users. For example Office users , DTP specialists , they need start menu , simple to get everything than new design . It is very annoy to move mouse pointer to one side  all the time to get apps, Keyword shortcuts will reduce difficulties to an extend , but still it seemed to be  a difficult. Start menu is the easiest tool to get all apps. Improved start menu in Windows 7 make it more easy. This make Windows 7  to a most successful , user friendly Operating system after Windows XP.
