Bypass Windows limitations...

The ability to customize your Start Screen with your favorite apps and colors, adding people, photos and other tiles is a built-in feature in Windows 8.
However, Windows only allows adding certain types of tiles to the Start Screen.
With Start Screen Unlimited, you can easily bypass these limitations, and customize your Start Screen with just about anything.
You can make your Start Screen show your favorite sports channel, add interactive menus, embed Google search, show digital or analog clock, or enhance the appearance of your Start Screen with anything you can imagine.

With Start Screen Unlimited, you can group the most frequent actions into a single menu for quick access.
Switch users, shut down your computer or put it to sleep mode, launch applications or open frequently used documents from a convenient pop-up menu.
