RetroUI for Windows 8 blends Start Screen with Start Menu

Posted on Wednesday, December 05 2012 @ 14:05:57 CET by

Neowin reports Thinix has issued an update for RetroUI, a Windows 8 program that adds a taskbar and Start menu button to the Windows 8 Start Screen. New in the latest release is support for multi-monitor setups, new languages and bug fixes.
The Enforce feature in RetroUI, which adds a taskbar and Start menu button to the Windows 8 Start screen, has also been improved. Thinix says, "Enforce now offers the option of automatically returning to the classic desktop when (the F4 key) is used to close a Windows Store App." Thinix has also added a new advanced hotkey that can be used to reset Enforce settings.

Finally, the new version has added three more languages (Afrikaans, Hungarian/Magyar, and Turkish/Türkçe), fixed a couple of bugs that have been discovered since the launch of the last version, and added some refined colors and themes for the Start menu.
The downside is that the program isn't free, it costs $4.95. A free alternative is Classic Shell.
