SAN FRANCISCO -- January 28, 2013

IObit, the world's leading system utility software provider, announced a brand
new and free system tool that will enable Windows 8 users to get themselves
better familiarized with the new Microsoft operating system. IObit StartMenu8
provides a quick and convenient way for Windows 8 users to bring back both the
Windows Start Menu and the Start button, while also disabling things like
Windows 8 Hot Corners, the Metro Sidebar and hot keys. By giving users more
control over their Start Menu, StartMenu8 aims to help users feel more
comfortable while using Windows 8.

While many users have praised the new features in Windows 8, one user
interface change has met a considerable amount of criticism. In this latest
version, the Windows Start Menu, a staple of all Windows operating systems for
the last 15 years, has been replaced with the touch-screen optimized Metro UI.
StartMenu8 lets users automatically skip the Metro UI screen and immediately
gain access to the desktop when Windows 8 loads. But rather than just give
users access to the menu they are most familiar with, StartMenu8 also offers
four easy-to-use and fully configurable menus that let users remove features
they don’t need or customize start button with their own images. Users can
also create quick access links to their favorite and most-used applications by
right clicking to “Pin to StartMenu”, “Pin to Taskbar” or "Pin to Startup."

“IObit has a proven track record of listening closely to what users need and
providing the best system utilities in the world. There may be other programs
that give access to the Start Menu in Windows 8, but IObit’s SmartMenu8 is
both the simplest and most comprehensive option on the market. This
combination of simplicity with a very high level of customization is rare for
any system utility.” Said Michael Zhao, Marketing Director at IObit. “Simply
install StartMenu8 and you will have the old Start Menu back just the way you
want it. And the best part, it’s totally free.”
