Make Windows 8 Work More Like Windows 7

Leo has been hearing about a lot of pain from users who have upgraded to Windows 8. Fortunately, there are a few ways to make Windows 8 a little more familiar without having to downgrade back to Windows 7.

  • RetroUI
  • This brings back a start menu to Windows 8, but not the exact same menu from Windows 7. It creates a kind of hybrid of the two user interfaces, and makes Windows easier to understand.

  • Classic Shell
  • This makes Windows 8 look exactly like Windows 7.

  • Start 8
  • This simply adds a start menu to the Windows 8 desktop view.
