how to disable metro in 8

[ Edited ]

open regedit go to >HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer

change value of RPEnabled from "1" to "0" then you will have win 7 style start menu

close regedit, you get your old start menu...... To get back the Metro UI, change the value back to "1"

Re: how to disable metro in 8

I tinkered with the registry manually which resulted in a infinite loop,the system would never log off. I did a forcible shutdown and did a system restore to undo the registry change.
