Can somebody explain how to remove StartMenu from Explorer Shell?


I tried registry tweak, but it not works (startmenu killer just hide it).




1) This is win 8 not win 7 to have old start menu.


2) Start menu is not practical (fast) for navigation and just take the place on taskbar.


3) If somebody want Start menu, it is very easy possible to replace it with any of (many) available (free) and portable win 8 style start menu (so, tiles instead of icons).


4) ,,,,


Finally, I cant understand why Start menu MUST to be conected with explorer shell (but this is not important, as it is just me). Apps navigation (start menu) and file navigation (explorer) are essentially same, but in real world, two completely different issues. Also, this is (removal of classic start menu) also what we get like resalt of MS evaluation of future OS development.




Im personally using JUST explorer for file navigation (thats why I want it and not BS and simillar) and personally metro style redisigned Xlauncpad for apps navigation (launched at startup - run from CD, so any further customization is realtime and persistent - it completely replace all start menu features and all additional portable launchers in ONE single launcher - much faster for navigation than ANY ther solution - .... - THIS IS NOT ADVERTISEMENT, just facts).

This week I will post the script and close the topic (admin can upload the script if he want on scripts page).




1) Build time (script dialog) options to set desired WinPE start environment effect, from existed - over autohide Start Menu - to REAL WIN 8 taskbar - and to fake/false 8.1 taskbar (so new 8.1 button to launch any other launcher).


2) Realtime WinPE setting change is possible also.


P.S. Separatelly, short tutorial for metro themepack.
