I have mentioned this in a previous post but there are a couple of ways you could do this. Check out the link below as to how you can create a start menu for your programs in Windows 8. I was doing some training last week and it would be so much easier to have a start menu than to have to press windows logo+c and then click on search and then find your program! grrr….
Try this or better still purchase Start8 – not sure if this works on a tablet but try the free download.
