Windows 8 Menu Switcher

Switch easily between Windows 8 old Start Menu and Windows Metro Style start screen.

This tool hides in system tray (notification area).

Just click any of the icons representing the old Windows Start Menu (orb) or Windows Metro Style to modify windows registry. Then click Restart Explorer you'll see the changes.

This will change to the old windows start menu (orb) in Windows 8, but it will also disable Explorer with ribbon and the new taskmanager.

And if you want to keep Ribbon Explorer, use the button which requires admin privileges instead of the icons.

All changes are reversible.


- Run at startup, so you can change it anytime you want
- Hides on system tray (notification area)
- Only works on Windows 8
- tested on Windows 8 32bits build 8102
- special button to only enable/disable old windows start menu (keeps ribbon explorer), requires admin privileges

Hints: The admin button allows you to have all the features.

To maintain anything but the metro screen, follow the next steps:

- Select the windows orb
- Restart explorer, and
- Select the windows flag
