While you're here, you'll notice that you can also disable some or all of Windows 8's hotspots, allowing you to safely roll your mouse into the corners of the screen, without worrying about triggering the charms bar, apps switcher or Start button.
Restore the classic Start menuThe lack of a Start button (never mind Start menu) on the Windows 8 desktop is annoying, but there are plenty of options for getting it back.
Access Metro apps from the classic desktopIt's possible, by installing Classic Start Menu and Skip Metro Suite, to avoid the Start screen entirely, but how do you access modern apps without it?
Click Next, give your shortcut a suitably descriptive name -- like Modern Apps -- and click Finish. Dump the File Explorer ribbonI quite like the new ribbon-like user interface added to the File Explorer in Windows 8, but if you prefer how things were in Windows 7, you can disable the ribbon quickly and easily using WinAero's Ribbon Disabler tool. Stop opening files in modern appsDouble-click a media file in the classic desktop and it'll open it in the corresponding modern user interface app.
Restore the Windows briefcaseMicrosoft thinks everyone wants to use cloud services like SkyDrive to keep their files synced across multiple computers.
Access POP email in MailThe Mail app doesn't like POP email accounts, but you can gain access to them.
Pin any file or folder to the Start screenThe Windows 8 Start Screen lets you pin programs and apps with no problems, but if you want to go further and pin shortcuts to files, folders or certain special shortcuts like the Control Panel, you'll need help in the form of Start Screen Pinner. They're all enabled by default, so simply untick those features you wish to keep before clicking Save Settings. Customising this list can be done by hand by browsing to a hidden folder -- press Win+R, type 'appdata' and press Enter.
Just launch the tool after unzipping it (choose the x64 version if you're running Windows 8 64-bit), and click Disable Ribbon Explorer, logging off and back on again when prompted to effect the change.

To revert to traditional desktop apps for your music, photos and videos, open the Control Panel and choose Programs, followed by Default Programs. If you're a fan of the old Windows briefcase, however, you'll be glad to learn it's possible to get it back in Windows 8 with a rather convoluted Registry tweak. The secret is to configure your web mail account to access your POP mail, which in turn can be read in Mail. Just download and install the tool -- when the SmartScreen Filter appears, click Details followed by Run Anyway to ignore it. Download, extract and launch this portable app, then simply add whichever shortcuts you need, which will subsequently appear on the Start screen for easy access.
But if you want something more traditional (and free), install the Classic Start Menu portion of Classic Shell instead.
Select Set Default Programs, pick your chosen app -- such as Windows Picture Viewer for photos, or Windows Media Player for music and video -- and click 'Set this program as default'. Click here to download a pair of Registry files that simplify the process of switching the briefcase feature on and off again. Once installed -- it's quite a slow process -- your new sidebar will appear, which works in exactly the same way as it does in previous versions of Windows. Dumping the lock screen requires a trip to the Registry Editor -- press Win+R, type 'regedit' and press Enter. Select your username, then untick 'Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer'. In this how-to guide, I'll reveal how to water down or ignore some of Windows 8's more controversial features and restore functionality you thought had gone forever.

If you'd rather your gadgets were individually floating on your desktop rather than pinned to the sidebar, just right-click the sidebar and choose Close Sidebar. While these tips aren't strictly about making Windows 8 like Windows 7, they address a few annoying niggles.Bypass the Start screen and disable hotspotsWhen Windows 8 first loads, you'll notice how it defaults to the new Start screen. If you'd rather go straight to the traditional desktop we all know and love, download a free tool called Skip Metro Suite.
