Windows has been the backbone of the world’s computing experience for decades. With over 400 million users worldwide, people have grown used to some standard elements in their Windows experience — like a Start Menu, for example.
Most previous versions of Windows have had the Start Menu. Going back to 1995, it’s been a given that you could find it at the lower left corner of the screen. For Windows 8 new users, finding out the Start Menu is no longer there may be a bit of a shock.
Before you start to panic, take a deep breath and relax. The Start Menu isn’t really gone — it’s just been transformed into something more useful: the Start Screen.
