Windows 8 Start Menu found!

Ok, we know Windows 8 is not throwing away the start menu. But where is it? It turns out that it’s just hidden and all you need to so is add a new toolbar and point it at the right directory.

On your desktop right click the taskbar and select toolbar add new toolbar. That will bring up a directory dialog, point at “C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\”

And then you have a start menu which expands to the old windows program files. My only question now is, where’s solitaire?
