I found a fix to run Start like Windows 7

Granted, not everyone likes all of the various utilities out there, but I am running IObit Advanced System Care 6 on my computer and they have a free add-on that you can download for free (with purchased program) that will give you the same desktop appearance as Windows 7, where everything is available through "Start." If you want to have Windows 8 Start appear, all you have to do is hold down the Alt + X and it brings you back to the Windows 8 format screen, use this to flip-flop between the two screens. I'm not as technologically advanced as you all, but this works superbly for me. It even has the "shutdown" feature so you don't have to go through two screens to shut down your computer.
