They added a FAKE start button to Windows 8.1 so that they could say that they put the start button back. But the fake start button is missing just one little thing... the start menu.

Microsoft is putting a stick in the eye of serious desktop users.

Why do you need a Start Button? Just start typing the program name you want... Or is using a mouse to point click, point click better for you?

Meh. I’ve been a sysadmin for 14+ years and I have no issue with 8 or 8.1. You just need to spend a bit of time setting up the start page and then it’s actually faster than the old menu.

Yeah, it's a fake start button but you can put a real one back, complete with original Windows 7 menus by clicking HERE and downloading Classic Shell.
