I've experimented with a number of tools that attempt to make the transition from Windows 7 to Windows 8 a little smoother, and without a doubt, the best utility for doing this is RetroUI.
You need RetroUI Pro.
Making the dreaded switch to the newest version of Windows can be often difficult especially if you’re well acclimated to the existing version. Our goal is to help you reach your full potential faster by easing the transition to Windows 8 with the help of our RetroUI interface. ZDNet states that, “I've experimented with a number of tools that attempt to make the transition from Windows 7 to Windows 8 a little smoother, and without a doubt, the best utility for doing this is RetroUI.”
RetroUI Pro brings revolutionary technologies to Windows 8, enabling it to be used efficiently on every type of PC. Included with RetroUI Pro is new patent-pending technology called RetroUI Enforce. Enforce brings back the Windows taskbar and Start button when the Windows 8 Start screen (Metro) is active. Windows Store (Metro) apps are now windowed so you can resize them and reposition them around the desktop.
In order for PC systems to remain high functioning and efficient, it is important to acknowledge that continual updates are necessary. RetroUI Pro also replaces the missing Start menu with a customizable start menu that integrates the Modern UI (Metro) features so you don't have to search for the charms bar or hidden corners anymore. You can also skip the Metro Start screen on login and block Metro features, if needed. These features dramatically improve the user experience and virtually eliminate the learning curve for anyone new to Windows 8.
