Removing Windows 8 Metro
Hello Wondering if someone could help
I'm trying to remove the Windows 8 metro screen for our students Tablets and bring back the start button, all attempts I've made so far have been application based works find however students are able to change the settings back. Dose anyone know of other way's of doing this via group policy or registry hacks?
Thanks for your time..
Try having a look at Classic Shell
It's not like the good ol' days where you could make Windows 95 boot in to Program Manager so it looked like 3.1 is it........
Thanks Michael, Classic Shell was one of the options i tried worked find however could work out how to stop everyone from having access to revert the setting back.... and Jawloms i agree with what your saying...

These registry settings lock Classic Shell down and stop the students getting round your settings

hmm .. those settings don't work for me on Win 8.1 with 4.0.2
