    Hi,

    I'm looking for a start menu replacement for my Win 8 Metro start. Please recommend me a free good start menu.

    Ah thanks guys. Classic looks great. Googled it and found nice positive reviews. I'll surely try it.

    I found through search called iobit start menu 8. How is it? Is it as good as Classic Shell?

    StartisBack paid is also well thought of. http://startisback.com/

    Here is a good list of start menu replacements. http://forums.anandtech.com/showthread.php?t=2283053

    Here is a recent thread which has a shot of my desktop with classic shell. https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=2300674&postcount=11

    I did add a custom Death Star start button and tweaked a few settings. It has tons of settings.

    Here is a review of classic shell by Mrk. http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/classic-shell-4-awesome.html

    @chachaz
    Thank you.

    @innerpeace
    Thanks a lot. I've settled on Classic Shell. Mrk's review helped very much. It's working great and exactly what I've been looking for.:D
