    Just perfect! i like this feature. Comes in pretty handy instead of hitting F* just to boot up to safe mode for TS purposes.

      What is the Metro Screen referred to in the "What's new in Start Menu 8 v2.0 Beta" shown in this forum area, and is this function added to other operating systems like Win7 if wanted, and not yet there, and are all other enhancements noted therein added also to that which is already in the Win7, and are these enhancements all added where they aren't till this program is installed?

        Hi Lightsttn1_1 ,

        Metro screen is referred to the Modern UI in Windows 8/8.1. Microsoft was using Metro when W8 is launched, but Modern is used recently after 8.1.

        I have edited the first post.

        Cheers.
