The Start8 menu is easy to install and has many customized configurations. For example, via Configure we changed what the power button should do. By default, it’s set to Shutdown. We changed it to Sign out. Via Control, we changed the Windows key to show the Windows 8 menu (This is the new start screen). This configuration allows us to use the classic start menu and also access the new start screen by pressing the Windows key.
