    So you just installed Windows 8 Preview and have discovered the Start screen but no 'Start menu' or button as such. Well this guide will show you how to quickly configure your Start screen as if it was your old Win 7 start menu. This is by no means the only way and is just one way of using Windows 8.

    Start.

    creating new block.

    Block created.

    repeat process.

    further progress.

    Yet more refining:

    Click this.

    naming blocks.

    moving blocks.


    So this is my menu. Plain and simple whilst being extremely fast with almost everything to hand. The Restart and Shutdown icons are easily available via the web but if you really struggle to find them ask me and I'll send.

    my start.
