Perhaps this is already well known, maybe not but I found a way to kind of make a start button for Windows RT. The button will take you into the "All Apps" screen, so it kind of, in a way is like a start button.
Here is how it looks
Here is how to do it
Step 1.Go to this link, right click on the picture, and click on "save picture as". Save it to your Documents Folder
Step 2. Go into the classic desktop and right click.
Step 3. Go to "New" and select "Shortcut"
Step 4. A dialog box will pop up. Copy and paste this exactly as is, into the box
Step 5. Click Next and then click Finish
Step 6. A new folder should be on your desktop titled "explorer"
Step 7. Right click on that folder and go down to "Properties"
Step 8. Under the "Shortcut" tab, there is an option to "Change Icon". Click on that button
Step 9. A new box should pop up. Click "Browse".
Step 10. On the left side, go into your "Documents" folder and find the picture you downloaded in Step 1. Double click on that.
Step 11. Click "Ok" on the "Change Icon" box and then click "Ok" on the "explore Properties" box.
Step 12. The icon for the "explorer" folder should now be a Windows 8 logo. Left click the explore folder once and drag it down to the toolbar at the bottom, all the way to the far left position. Let it go and you're done.
Anytime you click the Windows 8 logo, it will take you to the "All Apps" folder. Which kind of, soft of, in a way, is like a start button.
