    Just want to share with anyone still longing for a good old Start menu experience.

    I used to have Start Menu 8 v1.2.1 installed on my Win 8 Pro and it worked great.
    Then I upgraded to Win 8.1 Pro rtm and the Start menu 8 was not compatible.

    Yesterday I found out that a new version of Start Menu 8 by IOBit was released, claiming it is completely compatible to Win 8.1 rtm.
    I installed it, just to see if it is true.
    It works. Looks and works just like Win 7.

    The software is free.
    See screenshot..........In keeping with the new OS, I chose a different Start button instead of the traditional circular orb.

    Thanks for the info. It appears all the major players in the Start Menu replacement apps have updated to versions compatible with Win 8.1. The last I knew one or two were still in beta.
