Those of you who were "regulars" here in the past will remember how I warned everyone back last summer that Windows 8 was a freaking nightmare because of it's new Metro Desktop environment. I also stated in that thread that I thought Micro$oft would eventually write a scrip that would allow Windows 8 users to revert to the Windows 7 start menu and desktop.

Well, so far Micro$oft hasn't installed that patch for us but some enterprising people saw the need and have done that for us and there's even a couple of companies that are selling the mod to change it for something like $5. Those paid versions can be purchased here.

Another paid one here too.

But there are several others out there that are free at this point one of which is located here.

As usual, your mileage may vary and to be honest I haven't run any of them to know if they work well or not. I'd say the paid version might be a better choice as you'll likely get better tech support if something doesn't go right.

Enjoy!
