Bonus Tip of the Month:

Did you buy a Windows 8 computer? Are you going to buy Windows 8? When you do, here is the recently released  Windows 8 End User Training Brochure.

The next thing you have to do is snag Iobits Start Menu button. I have used a couple of different Start Menu buttons on Windows 8, and yes, there are quite a few out there. Some you pay for, but this free download works nicely. We like FREE.

Here’s the Start Menu button setup guide. Have fun with Windows 8!
