Setting up the tiles on the default Win8 Metro start screen is not the least bit appealing to us.
Purists will take the time to use the Win 8 Metro start screen as it was intended but we don’t have the time nor the desire. The Metro start screen is a major reason people hate 8.
To do what Windows should have done there are some third party start menu programs for Win8.
Our two favorites are: StartIsBack and Classic shell. A program called Start8 is also getting good reviews.
