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

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 load into RAM
- The Metro UI interface and Metro UI applications will no longer be available
- we will no longer have toast menus with “You have new program to handle this” and the association of the files will have to be done manually from the context menu or Default programs from the Control Panel
- We will no longer have taskbar support on all monitors if you have more than one monitor attached to your PC
- XMenu (Windows + X) and the possibility to take a quick screenshot by pressing the Windows key combination + Print Screen SysRq, will no longer work.
- When starting the PC, the operating system will enter directly into the Desktop interface.
- In the taskbar, in the lower left corner we will have placed the Start button as we know it from Windows 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.

  1. This application is good but it's tricky to do as many maneuvers and you need Windows 7.Eu and propose to go to the next site http://www.iobit.com and download 2 small applications that can bring the start button from windows 7 and "hide" metroUI. That is, windows 8 should start the same as windows 7 without metro interface. These applications are:
    StartMenu8 (start button) and WinMetro.

  2. hello… ..very good tutorial, adrian …… ..I was sure you won't give up… ..and you will take out the metro interface :)), ms once again, bye

  3. So yes tutorial. Congratulations !

  4. Hi video tutorial I also have a problem with windows 8. My C partition has 50 GB. I installed the beautiful windows yesterday, I put all the necessary drivers and finally I left the pc on overnight to upload something on a site. Before I went to sleep I checked the partition and I had 31GB free. In the morning when I came back I reached 28GB Free, I checked the temporary files with ccleaner and they are only 300 mb so where is the rest? Does windows download updates that take up so much space? A few months ago I installed win8 for the first time… everything is ok but after a few months of wear I reached 0bytes in C. I don't have this problem on win7.

    StartMenu8 (start button) and WinMetro.

    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 also for Fanibu, if you just want to hide Metro UI and at the start of the operating system to be thrown directly into the Desktop interface, we already have a tutorial on this topic and what to see, without using additional software! However, disabling is not the same as hiding. The tutorial I'm talking about can be found with the terms "How to set Windows 8 to open the Desktop interface on startup" written in the SEARCH box in the top right sidebar.

    For Windows nudorim 7 that moves badly, worse than 8!! 8-ulse very good move.! And that is why I personally do not like all this shit METRO UI. I would have liked but if I had not tablet PC.

    • Know that I understand your upset .. But let it be that with the help of God you will buy a good computer too .. On your computer grinder that you have now merge it will surely work for you almost any time windows… but to know that your sadness is justified. When windows 8 appeared, I was desperate to install my windows too, because I had a feeling that it was a good windows and look, it really is! To the pain of many .. windows 8 is a good windows. But you also have to have a good video card for two, a good processor for a very good one, an SSD… and see how well Windows 8 works for you then. And if you want an operating system you can switch to something from Linux .. I understand that it would be good .. almost everyone praises it (although when I hear that something is praised too loudly I already start to have doubts about that product :: :))) Don't be sad anymore… let it be that one day .. you will have a good computer and you will be satisfied too!

  11. There is a Windows software that make 8 to look and behave like Windows XP?

  12. I have a problem I 7 enterprise windows about a month everything went well until CAN I wanted to do an update and it gives me an error code and I saw C004F076 write in properties that windows I activated the-m ese activated when in the early days. aces could do., I noticed that the ISS days license nic not decrease remained 85.

  13. The tutorial is great! I do not understand why da world stuff. Do you have something to say about the tutorial forget it.

  14. Adrian can use and link to other sites. (For ex.: Own site)

  15. My opinion is that this is no longer windows 8 …… .. honestly if I wanted to get rid of METRO UI I would add windows 7, anyway a useful tutorial for those who "pull their teeth" to stay on windows 8, my opinion. good day!

  16. DON'T PAIN ANYMORE… what is the use of all this will not "sound" need to win 7. why change something good with something that is not better? Stay calm…. so it was with xp-vista, xp-win7.probably a win 9 will convince us… .until then… .it's good we have win7 / 64 ultimate.in my opinion.

    Nicolas:

    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 I do a tutorial I have to think about all the people who will watch the tutorial, the experienced ones, the old ones, the young ones. I can't address a single category of people because our slogan is "Do you think you know everything about PC?" In other words, we address everyone, and those who know absolutely nothing, and those who are average and advanced who think they have learned everything.

  19. Hi Adrian. Very good tutorial. Personally, I'm not bothered by the length of the tutorials - it really suits 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:
    Ady a totorialele lengthen too much like stalling, get to the point quickly as Cristi sometimes makes you boring because it lengthen too much I hope you do not mind me, all learn from mistakes.

    "Let it last", it's natural, do as he thinks, I prefer detailed, long tutorials, as you say, that's how you understand the mechanism, how it was made you just want to play on the final product and when something doesn't work you run to mom to buy another.

  21. hello… .god… .some want windows 8 without metro… ..others… ..will want windows 8 to behave like xp or something d kind… .please… .each with his “pussy”… as they say :) ) ..................................................................................
    Adrian… .I also have a problem related to the internet.I give a speed test… it shows me approximately how much I have speed, ex ping: 35,… after which… I enter youtube, I watch a video in full HD… I scroll forward back … .After I close, I already notice that it moves harder netu '… I come back with a test… very low speed 03mb, ping 150 200… ..and so on until I restart or go to control panel at network connection and disable to the network card after which I give enable I go I give a test and it came back ……… .I don't know where this problem comes from… .I repeat how you disable and enable it comes back immediately.I don't have anyone to consult with me, please much all if you can help me with some advice, you Adrian or Cristi, I jumped this thing .. I'm waiting for a solution I hope :) thank you, bye

    If you want windows 8 to "behave" like windows XP… why not put XP?… If you are afraid, that you run out of support and updates switch to linux or upgrade your PC or buy one that can hold a good 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.
    Type in the SEARCH box in the upper right sidebar: "How to run MetroUI applications on netbooks with resolutions lower than 1024 on 768" press the Enter key and you will find the tutorial.

    I have a laptop with a resolution of 1366 × 768. When you press the tiles it only tilts a little and nothing happens. I'm not getting any messages. For example. when you click on the Store, the green screen appears for a second, after which it returns to the Metro interface.

So something there and if so you could do a totorial about it? Thank you.

  32. Dear Adrian,
    Dear users of Windows 8!

    When I came across this tutorial, I thought I do not see well. Finally came a super efficient, I mean, to use a familiar interface W8 W7.
    How are cautious by nature usually read the comments.
    I pouted to end suddenly when I read this comment:

    Question for Adrian, or anyone who can answer me:
    Do you wonder that so little?
    Or you have to agree to do the daily updates and install it (the application) again after each update…

    Another question came instantly when I read the comment that:

    Is there a real tutorial for disabling unnecessary services in Windows 8, in this case those "carefully" put by 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.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding!

I use gtx460 video card .. 256 bit bandwidth ..

I did something nasty at windows! Thank you very much …

  39. I do not understand why Metro interface should be disabled because it is something new, beautiful and extremely helpful .... it's a little harder until she gets used each [considering that Microsoft wanted a common interface laptop and tablet] .... how about speed in favor of Windows to Windows 8 7 .... who says that means his life has not put his hand on a computer with a Linux distribution on it ...... I've tested over linux distributions 50 impressed me KIWI ..... Linux [based on Ubuntu] ... because who does not use the computer for gaming, linux badly beat any windows or 7 8 either .... impressive is the almost the 200 mb kiwi use linux almost 1,5 gb to those used by Windows However .... just open the computer without touching any key ... and most of all it's FREE linux .....

      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've been using this solution and I haven't loved it as someone recommended above, for about 5 months, and indeed when it does some w8 updates, it tries to return to the metro interface, but if you restart it, it returns well to the usual interface. Given that a restart doesn't really take that long on the w8, this "maneuver" is acceptable.

    • the solution from iobit doesn't need any restart, it's something like you put it in and it stays there without fireworks like restart or I don't know what else… .try it and we'll talk..luckily…
      PS after installing the start menu from iobit, I had about 15 updates controlled by "windows update" and the metro interface NEVER returned after performing them… ..

    We salute!
    The whole thing above makes and Viva Start Menu.
    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.
    Guide can be downloaded here: http://www.vivastartmenu.com/
    There are versions x32 and x64 bit.
    Success!
