Start Menu Reviver BETA for Windows 8.1 Now Available


Today, we are very pleased to announce the release of a new BETA version of Start Menu Reviver that is compatible with the Windows 8.1 consumer preview that was announced last week at the Microsoft BUILD developers’ conference.

Since the release of this consumer preview, we have been inundated with requests for a version of Start Menu Reviver that will work with it. Even though the Start Button was re-introduced back into Windows 8.1, there are many people that want a Start Menu that opens up on the desktop, not just a button that takes them to the Start Screen.
The version of Start Menu Reviver that we are releasing as a BETA will give you just that.

We are aiming to have a non BETA version available some time in the next week but until then I hope that this will help those people missing the Start Menu from Windows 8 and Windows 8.1!

Please let us know your feedback here.
