Start Menu Reviver For Windows 8.1

Start Menu Reviver has been available for nearly 2 months now and has helped thousands and thousands of people to really love using Windows 8. We have been extremely blessed with the feedback we that we have received from customers. At the bottom of this email I have included some of this great feedback. Please keep it coming! We love hearing it! Submit your feedback here.

Today we are extremely excited to announce that Start Menu Reviver is completely compatible with Windows 8.1 Consumer Preview as well as, of course, with Windows 8. Even though Windows 8.1 is not going to be released till later this year, the Consumer Preview has been available since June 26. We have been receiving feedback from some of our users that the original version of Start Menu Reviver would not work with Windows 8.1. We are really happy that we can offer a version to those early adopters of Windows 8.1 so that you can continue to enjoy using Start Menu Reviver.

How to get it

To download Start Menu Reviver, no matter if you are using Windows 8 or 8.1 you can go to the Start Menu Reviver Product Page.

What about the Start Button in Windows 8.1?

Many people will ask about the new Start Button in Windows 8.1. If you would like to learn more about the Start Button we have written a detailed guide to it here. The simple truth is that if you want to use just the Start button you can. Start Menu can be easily disabled or uninstalled if you would rather try or use the Start Button and Start Screen. We still think that using Start Menu Reviver is better of course :)

Now onto that great feedback!

Here is some of the feedback we have received from users so far, Keep It Coming!

The Start Menu Reviver is great. I can still use tiles without switching back and forth from Desktop Mode. Windows 8 is awesome, but I was always annoyed by having to switch screens to run certain apps and programs. I loved that I could customize the available tiles and make my computer even easier to use. I am back in charge. Thanks!

I am instantly a fan of Start Menu Reviver. I thought that I could live without the start menu after becoming accustomed to Windows 8 over the last five months. After installing this product, I don’t know how I have survived without it!! This is a great tool. It will make time on my computer more productive. It is extremely easy to install. It is easy to use. I can place the apps and websites that I visit most often within the start menu for ease of opening them when I start my computer. I love it! I can easily access my desktop from the start menu, access settings and my default internet provider. I can also access ‘recent places’.
This is a product very well done!!

I really like the concept overall, definitely something I would be interested in downloading/using
The process of using the tiles was easy to get used too.

This is surprisingly cool. Not only have you added the familiar Start Menu back into Windows 8, you’ve actually improved on it. Good job.

THANK YOU FOR MY START MENU BACK!!! I have to be honest. I was still using my husbands laptop with Windows 7 due to the lack of a start menu. Now I’m all Windows 8!!! You’re product is absolutely unbelievable and makes my life so much easier. I can access everything without having to feel like I’m on a scavenger hunt!! I can’t see it doing anything less then benefiting the public, especially those who don’t like change like myself. THANK YOU,

I have NEVER given feedback on any product but felt that this time…I had to. Your app, Startmenureviver is absolutely brilliant! I could write a series of books to express just how impressed I am with it but, I am simply going to say a very big and heartfelt THANKYOU!!!

Just to say that this is a GREAT tool. I have replaced my previous Windows 8 Start button software by Reviver and I really enjoy it. It is very powerful while very nicely designed. Congratulations for developing such a nice program.

I recently discovered you guys by way of your Windows 8 Start Menu Reviver. I tried several and absolutely love the UI you’ve created. The aesthetics trumps anything I’ve come across. So, nice work on a great app! If you guys could add a few simple features I’m sending in, it would be perfect! love what you guys are doing. Keep up the great work!

The current Start Menu Reviver is one of the best for Windows 8. Nice job!
Phong P
Great piece of software, wouldn’t want to use Windows 8 without it. Keep up the good work
Holy smackerel!
Start Menu Reviver is THE BEST start menu I have EVER SEEN and probably ever will see.
Awesome doesn’t even come close to describing this beautiful, fully functional, and masterfully crafted piece of software.
Microsoft should be ASHAMED that they did not ship with something exactly like this.
Maybe we should put their next OS release in YOUR hands and we’ll actually get something everyone can rave about instead of hate.
The icing on the cake is that your masterpiece is absolutely free.
My hat is off to you.
I will actually look to obtain other paid software from your company given the supreme excellence found in this product.

This is the most favorable for the new Win 8 concept. Its a wonder why MS didn’t come up with this idea and use it, it would have settled a lot of complaints.
Many start menu programs are out, and all do a fine job, but this one seems to fit right in with the Win8 GUI.
Its hard to see why MS has not contacted you to see about using this.

We hope you all enjoy using the product with Windows 8.1!
