If you’re a fan of the Start button that has been with the Windows operating system ever since Windows 95, it looks like Windows 7 might be the last place you can see it. According to some new reports about Windows 8 that surfaced last week, the iconic Start button is now gone. Instead, it’s been replaced by a hot spot on the bottom left corner of the screen that you need to hover over to bring up – though you can also press the Windows button on your keyboard or hit CTRL + Esc (I guess it’s hard to completely kill off something that’s been with us for what seems like a long time).
However, since the report is about an incomplete version of Windows 8 and not the final version, there’s still a chance that the button hasn’t been removed yet. Perhaps it is now optional instead of mandatory? I guess we’ll find out more when the Consumer Preview of Windows 8 is released in a few months. Do you think you’ll miss the Start button if it ever gets removed?
