Start8 is the best solution to bring back the missing Start menu in Windows 8.  Stardock has released a new beta update for registered users and subscribers to Object Desktop with various improvements and fixes.

Update includes:

  • Added Start8tweak.exe advanced configuration for extra options including enabling / disabling Start8 on a per account basis.
  • Added email category to search results.
  • Added support for Modern UI app closing to return to the desktop rather than the Windows 8 menu on advanced settings.
  • Added native support for the DisplayFusion secondary taskbar.
  • Added support for BMP files as start button. RGB (255,0,255) is permitted for transparency.

The full update list can be found here.
