Windows 8 Will Remove Start Button


Microsoft’s upcoming operating system Windows 8 will remove the legendary “Start” button for the very first time since its 1995 debut. Instead users will gain more space on the enhanced icon shortcut bar first implemented in Windows 7.

Build 8220 Consumer Preview also introduces what Microsoft are calling the “Charms Bar” which sits on the right hand side of the screen where the current Windows Sidebar resides. It’s purpose is to provide transparent icons for Start, Search, Settings, Share and Devices. Upon selection the appropriate menu protrudes out as a column.
