    start menu

    I've been using 8.1 without any trouble but had it set to boot direct to desktop and used start8 to get the usual menu. I've downloaded Win 10 onto a USB and installed. All wwent well and it all seems to work exept that it boots to desktop and the start8 menu system is still there. No sigh of the new start menu. Removing start8 from the computer makes no difference. Any ideas about how to get the new start menu?

    What does the start button now produce? Nothing?

    This just proves I'm a fool. I was looking for a complicated solution but of course it is simple. as I realised when on my third coffee. All you do is click on the start8 windows symbol and in the menu click on Windows 8 start menu. Hey presto, the new Windows 10 start menu appears.

    I thought you had uninstalled Start8.

    Start8, and others like it are cop outs for the weak-willed, and faint-of-heart!
