Hey... the Classic Shell update today now has an option to bypass the W8 Metro and add back the start button.

Vishal Has It

FYI

@warlock,

Yep, that's why I posted it.

I think about half of our Windows 7/8 users run the GREAT program.

Couldn't run without it. :) ;)

Gives you "Fly Out Menu's" like ole XP so you don't have to search for everything.

Much quicker to use and hides nothing.

I think your Spouse will like it much better and enjoy it.

Easy to install and uninstall leaving not a trace behind.

Never had my own XP, used it at work only and still do. I went from 98SE to Vista.

I jumped from XP to Win7 so never used Vista and that's why I don't answer many Vista questions. :)

Will try that Classic Shell on Vista machine. If the wife likes it will put it on the W7 machine. Actually I'm okay with how things are now.

SHIFT + click START gives you Original Vista look.

Click START gives you XP look.

You can use it BOTH ways without uninstalling it. :) :)
