Skip Metro Suite is a free portable Windows 8 tweaking tool that let you boot directly to your classic Windows desktop, get rid of all the hot corners so they don’t bother you when you move your cursors around. Basically, it will turn a Windows 8 computer work like an enhanced Windows 7 machine.
It comes with two editions, one for 32-bit and one for 64-bit. The download package includes both so just extract and launch the one that fits to your version of Windows.
Using the tool is extremely easy. Check the option Enable Skip Metro Suite and select the Windows 8 features you want to disable. And press Save to save the changes. All changes will take place after your computer is rebooted.
Skip Metro Suite doesn’t have a Start Menu replacement. I hope it does though. So if you want that back, you will find one of those 3rd party Start Menu replacement for Windows 8.
One thing is also noticed that the author of Skip Metro Suite, WinAero, has also built a number of other tweaking tools that are worth checking. We even covered two of them previously, Taskbar Pinner and Boot UI Tuner.
