Start button missing in Windows 8 – Microsoft mistake?
In one of our latest blog posts we’ve collected the biggest Microsoft’s mistakes; Tony, our customer, read the post and asked us one day: “Don’t you think a Start button and menu missing in Windows 8 is a huge Microsoft flop too?”
We totally agree with Tony and decided to write a new blog post about the consequences of the Start button missing in Windows 8 as a continuation of our blog post about Microsoft mistakes.
We wonder how many of you booted up Windows 8 for the first time, navigated your way to the Desktop, and now started wondering: “Where did Microsoft put the Start button and menu?” For some reason, Microsoft decided that Windows 8 was better without a Start button and menu, instead forcing mouse-and-keyboard users to try and interact with the difficult at points Windows 8 Start screen.
When Windows 8 users called the lack of a Start button the worst move since releasing Vista, Microsoft started to plan to fix the mistake and bring back the Start button in Windows 8.1 later this year.
