Microsoft has taken away the "Start" menu in Windows 8. Windows 8 is missing a feature that many of us use several times a day. Many people are wondering why Microsoft did this.
Apparently, data has indicated a decrease in the use of the Start button. Microsoft found more users relying on the Windows taskbar for pinning and accessing their favorite software instead of going through the Start menu.
We think this is going to be an usability nightmare for people migrating to Windows 8. Thankfully, there is a solution.
