Millions of users bemoan the fact that Windows 8 has done away with the classic Start menu button. Fortunately, theres a way to resurrect a skeletal version of it in Windows 8s Desktop UI by attaching the Programs folder to the taskbar. Heres how: Navigate to the desktop if youre not there already. Right-click on the Taskbar at the bottom of the screen to pull up a menu. Highlight the Toolbars sub-menu to reveal more options. Click on New toolbar. Type or Paste %ProgramData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs(without the quotes) into the Folder field at the bottom of the New Toolbar window that appears and click Select Folder.
