    For example, the 'Aero glass' look was also removed and replaced with a more 'metro' design. Windows Desktop Gadgets were also removed due to security exploits.... :erm:

    Start button/menu

    Thankfully, it was restored in Windows 10, which made Windows 10 usable again

    They also removed the default games like Spider, Hearts, Freecell etc.

    Sidebar gadgets can be restored via the 8GadgetPack, which I use on my Windows 10 machines.

    Start menu, the bottom left button made you **** off to a whole new world of pure imagination instead.

    Also they killed minesweeper, which in turn killed me.

    start button
    The word 'button' and 'menu' are used interchangeably. The Start menu as was known traditionally was also removed and replaced with a fluid 'metro' UI. If you want to get truly pedantic, the start 'button' also still existed in the retail version of Windows 8 at the left corner. After hovering for 2 seconds the start button would appear.
