In older versions of Windows, desktop users were generally fairly pleased with the Start Menu. You’d click the icon and you’d be able to select programs, Control Panel, run Searches — without taking up your entire screen, like Windows 8 does. If you’d like to return to doing things the old-fashioned way, then you can use Windows 8′s “Expert Menu”, also known as the “Quick Access Menu” and “Power User Menu”. I’m going to explain its functions.
First, move your mouse to the bottom-left corner of your screen and right-click, or press Windows Key + X. You’ll see a list of menu options appear.
From here, I’ll tell you what each of these Quick Access Menu options does.
Feel free to use this feature to restore the classic Start functionality you know and love — plus a bunch of shortcuts to options that technicians and repairmen will appreciate.
It is called the Expert Menu for a reason, after all.
