Bringing back the Start menu in Windows 8: Start Menu Reviver

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, May 30, 2013

Bringing back the Start menu in Windows 8.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     Windows 8 has plenty of interesting new features, especially for touchscreen users.  But some consumers don’t appreciate Microsoft’s decision to do away with the Start menu.   That’s opened the door for some software makers to step in with replacements.   ReviverSoft is out with a free solution called Start Menu Reviver.   Founder and President Mark Beare…

“It’s a Start menu unlike any other.  And it can be completely personalized to make it yours.   It uses tiles rather than lists of applications so you can set up tiles in the Start menu to represent what applications you use the most.  You can change the way tiles look, you can give them colors.  It allows great flexibility.  Because of tiles it works very well with touch.”

It is simple to install from ReviverSoft.com, and again, it’s free.   You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
