Just install Start8 from and enjoy windows 8. You get the benefits of Win8, while it looks like Win7. You can download a free trial to start off with, and if you like it, the app is only $4.99. It fixes the menu and all the unfamiliar behavior of Win8.

The "Start Menu" replacement programs like this really do work well. I use Classic Shell, and as you say Start8 is very popular.

Frankly I now often forget that my Win8.1 isn't actually Win7 just like the rest of my machine's.

Me, too. Except that I like the Win 8.1 File Manager better than Win 7 Explorer.

I do recommend that if you stay with Win8 you do upgrade to WIn8.1, they provided the patch for a reason.

I disliked 'Metro' on sight, and still have no use for it.

But I can't get upset with Win 8/8.1 when the Metro UI problems are so easy to fix.
