    Sure.As I said, it was an example of how I have made use of the Modern gui. The alternatives you suggest would, of course, also be applicable to a third part start menu.
    fwiw, to double click an image could have its delays and complications. First you would need to find the image, if not already pointing to it, you may then need to ensure it will open to the default you need. In my case, I have more sophisticated programs than Paintnet, but have that as my default for expedience.
    I thought I clearly explained that I took the alternative and adapted to the modern gui.
    My post was really in defence of reaction towards Drew's post.

    "As you're starting demo from windows key or Start button - you just like start screen"
    I think you may have missed the point? The modern gui IS my start menu.

    Well, yes, but doesn't it mean you like it? Surely one will use only something he or she likes the most.

    But it doesn't matter actually, I don't want any arguing :) My idea is not confronting yours its just "tastes differ".

    Even with my 10inch win 8 tablet, I don't use the start screen. I still prefer the desktop with classic shell (custom start menu icon) and a dock app. The only thing I like in Win 8 is speed and the fact that it can run on tablets. I have yet to see a Win 7 running on an 8" or a 10" tablet. :)

    No. I had absolutely no intention of creating an argument. either. I really thought, My quote:
    " I took the alternative and used the modern screen as my start menu. So used to it now, I would not wish to go back to the text start menu."
    made it clear that , yes, I do like it. But that is beside the point. I think the essence of my post was to demonstrate the way, as suggested originally by Drew, of another method of NOT having to install a third party menu.
    The subject is now closed.

    To be honest Ankit I think you mainly post to promote the link in your signature which is against forum rules if i remember correctly..
