Win Eight Metro UI Switcher (Portable) v1.2

The first thing you meet when beginning to explore Microsoft Windows 8, is the new immersive interface (called Metro UI). And there is a new screen that pops out every time you press the old good Start button, instead of the Start menu.

This small free utility lets you to disable the Start screen of Windows Eight and to return the Windows 7 styled Start menu. The tweaker also gives back the classic Task Manager that can show CPU utilization history per processor/core.

Do note that when the Metro UI is disabled, Windows Explorer has the revamped Ribbon interface turned off. And you can enable Windows 8 immersive UI again, if you want to. For the changes made to take effect, you have to restart or log off your system after tweaking.
