I love this little app: Classic Shell - Start menu and other Windows enhancements It changes my Start button in desktop mode to the old Windows 7 start functionality - including menus, etc.. I then went on to add the old "Quick Launch toolbar". My Desktop experience is like it was on Windows 7 - which for me is ideal (others may HATE that...). Metro is the same as it should be. Either way - the program is fully customizable, free and can be uninstalled and the Start button can be mapped to different images, etc.
