Yesterday, Paul Thurrott reported that Microsoft is planning to bring back Start Menu is the upcoming update for Windows 8. This move from Microsoft is targeted towards power users who use keyboards and mice. It would be similar to the current Windows 7 Start Screen allowing users to access their apps, folders, etc,. Maary Jo Foley today confirmed that Start Menu is coming back and it is internally known as “mini-Start”.
Since Thurrott’s initial December 10 report on the return of the Start Menu, I’ve heard from my own contacts that this is highly likely to happen. Microsoft is, indeed, highly likely to bring back Start Menu. Supposedly it’s being called internally “mini-Start,” (as it won’t be a full-screen Start Menu like in Windows 8), one of my contacts said.
Are you really looking forward to this upcoming Start Menu?
