Windows 8 Developer’s Preview - Remove Metro UI

“…First, start regedit. In Windows 8, if you are in the Metro Interface, you can just type r e g e d i t and that application will appear in the search, like you see in Figure A.

Figure A
Just start typing in Windows 8 and the OS will assume you want to search for an application

Inside the registry editor, navigate to this key:


Double-click the key labeled: RPEnabled as shown in Figure B.

Figure B

Double-click RPEnabled

When the Edit DWORD comes up (Figure C), change the Value data from 1 to zero and click OK.

Change the Value data from 1 to zero

That’s it. Now, when you click the Start Menu on the Windows 8 Desktop you will get the old Start Menu you know rather than the tiled screen Microsoft is hoping you will want to know..”
