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.
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.
There is an option of windows blind. Can we use that? I had used it once but i faced many problem, like my system was working too slowly. Some time it gone hang. Is there any other application like windows blind?
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..

Anyway, your personal project seems very interesting.
No Offense but ic would rather use Windows 8.1 instead of Windows 8 with a power app.
Windows 8.1 suits the ecosystem much better than the altered Windows 8.
Thank you. It's been a while since this thread was started
The Google Code platform altogether has died since then.
The Power8 is hosted in GitHub: Releases · AgentMC/power8
Since Windows 10's start menu is more or less usable, the application has not been recently maintained, yet it launches just fine even on the latest Windows 10.
