Do you think Microsoft will ever bring back the Start Button
I say no! If you miss the START Button just switch to the DESKTOP. I started using Windows 8 in Beta. Its was a real mess back then, and the Apps were very Spartan. Since then thing have come a long way. It took me a while to figure out that the MENU page is replacing the START Button. I have discovered a few other things about Windows 8 along the passing of time. Of which the missing Start button was the easiest to get used to. During Beta I had my DVD drivers, after the full version I had none! I purchased new ones for about $35.00, now there is an App costing about $15.00. I found that there are two very different versions of the Internet Explorer in Windows 8:
(1) one I call the App version and it caters to the media people that don't like computers users stealing their content, so cutting, pasting, enlarging, and shrinking doesn't work unless the media people allow it. I don't know why, I think maybe it is a web security thing, and the Adobe Flash Player doesn't work no matter what! (It drives me batty)
(2) two the DESKSTOP Version of the Internet Explorer acts just like the one in Windows 7, just like the one I have grown to love so much over the years. I tried loading Google's Chrome on Windows 8 and it worked for about a week before I got the famous "Windows Blue Screen of Death". I am lucky I had made Recovery Disks before, just rolling back the system didn't fix it, I had to wipe the hard drive and use those Recovery Disks. I have found a Google App that lets my do some of the Google domain, but again because it is an App the Flash Player doesn't work. My laptop used to be Windows 7 before I installed Windows 8, trust me It is remarkably faster reading email and surfing the web. Those are the only two things I care about speeding up on my computer and Windows 8 hits the mark for me.
