The Start button is one of the hardest UI elements to use in the user interface of Windows. Invented in Windows 95, it is still the same for many years and has remained in the same position for eternity. Everyone familiar with Windows desperately wants to know how to use that button. In Windows 8, Microsoft tried to remove the Start button to eliminate the confusion, but users got upset and demanded its return. So the Start button returned in Windows 8.1. Today, we will learn how to click the Start button properly.
To click the Start button properly, follow the instructions below.
- Sit on a chair comfortably near your PC. If you are using a laptop or a tablet, you can take it to the couch.
- Put your hand on the mouse or on the touchpad in case of laptop. If you are using a tablet PC, prepare to use the touch screen.
- Click/tap the button with Windows logo at the beginning of the taskbar. It is usually at the bottom left. You need to click it with the left mouse button.
That's it. Alternatively, you can press the Win key on the keyboard. This action is similar to the Start button click.
You are done. In case you are confused as hell why I am explaining something so simple, you just read the April Fool's Day article at Winaero.
