Microsoft has made a big change of removing start button at the left bottom from the upcoming Windows 8. The start button that you must have used in your previous Windows versions up to Windows 7 is been Ditched by the Microsoft windows 8 developers , really a big and bold decision. However they have provided an alternate to start button by providing a Hot corner. Hovering your mouse over that spot will open thumbnail preview of Metro-Style Start Screen , thus removing the pop-up opened in previous versions of windows. Swipe option will be provided the same functionality for touchscreen users.The start button was introduced in Windows 95 version and it has been killed in windows 8.

However the new Super Bar will retain its functionality of pinning shortcuts as in the Windows 7.We will review you about the new Hot corner in the Windows 8 soon .
