When Windows 8 was released, one of the most important changes made in it was the non availability of start button and addition of start screen. The new start screen looked very pretty but many users complained about missing start button and hence this issue was addressed by Microsoft with the launch of windows 8.1. The preview version of Windows 8.1 was released last june, it had start button and this feature continues to be available till the launch of Windows 8.1 RTM.

But still there is something missing that is lack of options to customize the start button since there is no user interface available to change it. An alternate option is available for the users who want to change the start button. The freeware tool Windows 8.1 Start Button Changer lets users to change the start button in Windows 8.1 easily.
