StartisBack 2.0 Windows 8 Start menu program released

There are quite a few Start menu programs for the desktop interface for Windows 8; in fact there's so many it's practically become a cottage software industry on its own. One of those programs is called StartisBack, which released its first version back in October. This week, the team behind StartisBack have launched version 2.0 of the software with a number of new features.

The release notes for the new version reveal that StartisBack 2.0 allows users to create a shortcut to the Windows 8 Start screen inside the start menu, along with an option to have a Start Screen hot corner on the desktop UI. It also has a new option to display all programs as a multi-column flyout menu, similar to the Start menu in Windows XP.

All of the "Modern" Windows 8 apps can now be integrated into the StartisBack Start menu. The development team have also improved the program's Appearance interface, along with a new skin and orb image. There are also quite a few bug fixes and improvements along with some other new features and options.

There's a free trial version available for the program and if you like it you can purchase the full version for $3 which gives users two PC licenses, or $5 for the license rights to five PCs.
