Pokki knew very well how to exploit the need created by the disappearance of the Start button on Windows 8 by providing an app able to present all the shortcuts available in the classic Start menu, while also providing access to almost all the features of your system via the shortcut Control Panel (do not forget to check that the option "Use Pokki as my Start Menu" is selected during installation). The buttons to turn off, restart or pause your system are naturally present, with an additional option to switch to the Modern UI interface. The configuration options allow you to customize your Start menu by changing the theme, the Start menu icon or by turning off the "hot corners" option of Windows 8.

Another interesting feature of Pokki is the ability to designate apps as favorites. In all the menus, a star is located next to the program name. Just click on the star (it turns yellow) for the program to be immediately listed in the Favorites menu. It couldn't be more easy. So Pokki is much more complete and elegant than the traditional Start menu of Windows 7 and its predecessors.

Finally, one of the things that make Pokki unique is its ability to provide an App Store, from which you can easily install many apps. In most cases, they are web apps such as Twitter or Facebook which can run directly in a "Pokki" window straight on your desktop, but recently the desktop apps such as Firefox or 7-zip also made their appearance as options.

If you are looking for more than just a Start menu, there is no doubt that Pokki for Windows has all the arguments to seduce you. Moreover, the PC manufacturer Lenovo was the first on the starting blocks when signing a partnership with Pokki to deliver its new Windows machines with Pokki 8.1 pre-installed. So follow their example, you know you want to!


Pokki brings back the Start Menu to Windows 8. Find and open your programs, files, control panel, and power options with one click of the Pokki start button. Search and organize your favorite apps and websites on your desktop, just like you would on a smartphone. And with the App Store, get hundreds of free apps and games for your PC. Discover and install free apps and games from the PC app store included with Pokki. Manage all your apps in Pokki's Windows 8 Start Menu, just like you would on a mobile device.

  • Search for apps, control panels, and files.
  • Add your favorite apps, sites, files and folders for quick access.
  • Boot to the desktop and skip the Windows 8 Start Screen.
  • Disable Windows 8 hot corners on the desktop and more.
  • Get free apps and games from the included Pokki App Store.
