Here is my concept for Windows 8 startmenu
its reduced to the basic functions that I USE
call it a mini startmenu. It will save space on tablets and small screen devices and still allow its main funtions.
The last bit is my idea for a search system where you select ur search engine and if for example you select google. Then the text and button will turn green and a google logo will appear when you type www before ur search word. And in doing so when you will press enter. IE will be opened with that search page.
All my ideas...
