Note: Theverge report that Microsoft is planning to make the Start menu available as an option in the next major Windows release. But i think start screen Is more power full and customizable then the start menu like windows7.
The biggest issue most people have with windows 8.1 is the dual environments. As desktop user I would like to work from desktop, also don’t want to loose lovely start screen and modern apps. But for using both of their apps I have to switch between them. On the other hand table user want touch environment but for desktop apps they also need to switch two environments Table Users with touchscreens don’t want to go desktop interface. It’s like whatever I’m a desktop or table user for using both environment apps I have to keep switching between taskbar and windows8 multitasking menu.
So what is the solution? My solution is to let MS choose which mode we love to work with and merge both environment on our choose mode. I call it ‘URmode’, on the charmbar their will be switch mode one is desktop and other is tablet.
URmode : Desktop
- After install windows 8.2 by default URmode will be on Desktop mode. Which can be change to table mode via charmbar.
- On desktop mode their will be no windows8 multitasking menu, taskbar will do the job.
- All modern apps will run from desktop (which you can already done using Stardock’s ModernMix ).
- Taskbar will stay on the start screen so we don’t feel different environment. Power button will be added beside Apps button.
