If you are using a Windows 8 machine and miss the menu and search windows then try this program which places a windows icon at the bottom of the screen to reveal the old familiar menu. I have been trying it out and it seems stable. It is a small cost $3.99 but worth every penny as I hate having to switch windows view to find an applications. It’s not fast Microsoft to do it that way! Call me stuck in my ways but this is really useful. I’ve attached an image to show what it looks like below. Thanks to Bob Harding for finding this!
