Make Windows 8 Look Like Old Windows
Windows 8 is causing a lot of people to ask, how do I go back to my old Windows! We understand, but there’s a better way!
It’s time for another Data Doctors Tech Tip.
Most Windows 8 haters, hate the new interface, where’s this, where’s that, and where’s my start button?
If you or someone you know is complaining about Windows 8’s missing Start button, we’ve got a great solution.
there’s a free app for that. It’s called Shell, and you can get it at classicshell.net.
Shell lets you modify Windows 8 to look more like the classic Windows, Windows 7 or even Windows XP.
Instead of going through the pain of downgrading your computer to an older version Windows, Shell bypasses the new tiled start page and gives you back your old familiar navigation.
This lets you learn the way Windows 8 functions, at your own pace which is a much smarter approach for the long haul.
If you want the app, you can get it at classicshell.net and it’s free.
Remember, embrace change, after all change is good, but now you can do it on your own terms.
