Windows 8, minus metro UI

Who would have known that I’d love the Windows 7 start menu. ¬†Well I want it back and with the following tweak you can re-enable the classic start menu that we all have come to love.

To get back the old start menu, open regedit, goto


change value of RPEnabled from “1” to “0”

close regedit, you get your old start menu……the catch is, no more metro UI because you just disabled it. To get back the Metro UI, change the value back to “1”
