How to permanently disable the Metro UI interface in Windows 8 - video tutorial

How to permanently disable the Metro UI interface in Windows 8 - video tutorial
5 (13) 100%

Hello friends, today's tutorial we will talk about a topic requested by many users of Windows 8. Specifically we will see how we can permanently disable (but not irrevocably) or Modern UI interface Metro UI from Windows 8.
To do this we use a software called Ex7forW8 course or Explorer7forWindows8. Before we plunge need to mention that you will need a DVD with Windows 7 or an ISO image with Windows 7 because application Ex7forWin8 will have to extract some files that can use the Windows shell 7 in place that used Windows 8. ISO image or DVD with Windows 7 32 bits must be on if you want to disable Metro UI on a Windows 8 32 64 bit or bits if you disable Metro UI interface of a Windows 8 64 to bits.
What we get after using Ex7forW8?
- Metro UI will no longer be loaded in RAM
- Metro UI interface and Metro UI applications will no longer be available
- There will be no drop-type toast with "You have new software to handle this ..." and file associations will be done manually from the context menu or Default Programs in Control Panel
- I will not support the taskbar on all monitors attached if you have more than one monitor to the PC
- XMenu (Windows + X) and the opportunity to make a quick screenshot by pressing the key combination Windows + Print Screen SysRq will not operate.
- When starting the PC, the operating system will go directly into the Desktop interface.
- In the taskbar, bottom left we have placed the Start button in Windows as we know 7.
In other words, if you like stability, speed and reliability of Windows 8 but do not want to use the Metro UI interface or Modern UI when Explorer7forWindows8 is all you need. That said, I invite you to watch the tutorial to see exactly how we use Ex7forW8 to return the Windows Start menu in Windows 7 8 and how to reverse controversial Metro UI interface.

    WinMetro's mission is to provide the opportunity for users of Windows XP, Vista and 7 use and its Metro UI and not to hide or disable the Metro UI in Windows 8. even it can not be installed on Windows 8 this WinMetro.
    I made clear in the text that Ex7forW8 tutorial and tutorial but does not hide permanently disables Metro interface, it is no longer loaded into RAM, no longer consume resources!
    I do not see why you would use 2 applications you can use only one fae both.
    7 Windows ISO image is on all roads. Microsoft even offers for free and legal download something, talking of course about Windows 7 Enterprise. So I do not see where the problem is.

  6. Adrian Gudus said

    And all for Fanibu if you just want to hide Metro UI and system startup to be thrown directly in Desktop interface, we already tutorial on this topic and what to see, without using additional software! However, not all one off to hide. The tutorial can be found talking about the words "How to set Windows to open one interface 8 Desktop at startup" written in SEARCH box in the upper right sidebar.

On your computer mills have now ... surely that you will go wrong or what kind of windows ... but to know that your grief is justified. When did windows 8 was desperate to me and I install Windows because I had a feeling that it is a good windows and forget that it really is! For many the pain .. 8 windows is a good windows. But you need to have a good video card just two really good a good processor, an SSD ... and see how well you run when windows 8. And if you want an operating system passes something from Linux .. I understand that it would be good .. Pretty much everyone praises (although when I hear that something is praised too much already beginning to have doubts about that product :::))) Do not be sad ... Say let that one .. and you'll have a good computer and you veii be satisfied!

    I have another older Cristi another age. Two men will never be the same. It is perfectly normal for everyone to have our way of explaining things and just as normal as you can have tastes to like a person or not.
    If you're more experienced, know that others are not and we had tutorials that users still do not understand how boring although as you say.
    When you make a tutorial should think about all the people who will watch the tutorial, those experienced in those vartsa to the young. I can not address a single category of people because our slogan is "You think you know everything about the PC?" In other words we address to all, and those who do not know anything, and those who are average and advanced learners who believe that they have before all

  19. Hi Adrian. Very good tutorial. Staff are not disturbed during tutorials - even for me.
    I have a question: might do the same for Windows 7? I mean we can replace explorer.exe in Windows XP as in 7. Merci.

  20. Nicolas:

    "Let lengthen" it's natural, do what I think, I prefer detailed tutorials, long, whatever, so you understand the mechanism, it was made you just want to play the final product and when something does not work you run to mommy to buy another one.

  21. hello .... ladies .... some will no metro 8 windows ..... others ..... will behave as 8 windows xp or something like that .... d pray .... each with "pussy" to ... as they say :) ) ..................................................................................

    If you want Windows 8 to "behave" as Windows XP ... why not put XP? ... if you're afraid that you run out of support and updates go to linux or upgrade your PC or buy one that can keep well a modern operating system with all software

    Man it looks like you do not understand a word. Windows 8 move very fast in comparison to 7 and XP obvious. We want to make (8 Customize Windows to your liking and make it as Windows 7 but he is 8) Everyone wants to do what he wants with Windows or and customize it how he wants. If I want the Metro UI that's no longer there are people who like Metro UI, I personally do not. So there must be a gate to escape the Metro UI. Again, to be more plastic and can X-Windows 8 ulescu wants to make Windows XP to get them out aero themese.!

  25. I have a problem. In Metro interface / Modern UI so called "tile-s" will not matter how I try to start. Applications weather, travel, sports have live update but no they can not be opened. I mention that Windows 8 Pro on an Acer x64 i3-380M processor. I read on some sites that it could be due to driver incompatibility. Intel integrated graphics for this process, we supported driver for Windows 8 so I installed the driver from Win 7. We have a dedicated card NVIDIA Geforce GT 540M I found drivers for the Win 8. I tried to disable auto select video card and I switched exclusively dedicated board. Even in this case tile start sites. I hope to find the solution. Thank you.

    So you can use the Metro apps you need as your display resolution must be at least 1024 × 768. I did some time ago as you can still run Metro apps even if we have a minimum resolution of 1024 × 768.
    Write in the box top right SEARCH sidebar "How to run Metro applications on netbooks with resolutions smaller than the 1024 768" press enter and you will find the tutorial.

    Is there a real tutorial to disable unnecessary Windows services 8, namely those made "with care" of people at Microsoft?
    Adrian: I do not mind that your explanations are a bit longer, or is sometimes repeated, are explained and those of a younger age in the use of computers.

      You're absolutely right. I have exactly the same view as yours. One correction I: and Windows is free. Really free. Any operating system is free. It's all free, just have to know how.

    Catalin, I use this solution and how IObit not recommend anyone above about 5 months and indeed when they do some updates w8, trying to return to the metro interface, but if you give a restart, its good returns to the normal. Given that even a restart does not take that much to w8 is accept this "maneuver".

    • IObit's solution requires no restart is something you put it, and there remains no such fireworks restart or what not .... try it and talk .. good luck ...
      PS After I installed the start menu from IObit, I had about 15 updates controlled by "windows update" and never metro interface has not returned after their performance .....

    It is a program that installs Win 8 and restore the Start Menu and the Start menu Win 7 still in place. No need for CD Win7.iso other complicated procedures (made just for the sake of art!). Requires a single reboot, and then customize as desired. It can disable the Metro and SO including the Desktop mode starts.
