In this article we explain how to upgrade Start8 for Windows 8. Stardock's Start8 app program is very useful for Windows 8. We provide an update feature in Windows 8 and we automatically load the Desktop on login.

Procedure to upgrade Start8 for Windows 8

Step 2

If there is some reason we want to make a change then right-click the Start8 Orb, and uncheck "On login go to the desktop".

Step 3

Remember it's not the traditional Start Menu from Windows 7. It shows the Metro UI when you click on it, which I actually find to be a nice feature.
