If you have been around since the time before Android, you likely remember the joy of playing with your registry values to get your Windows Mobile device to do other things. Well, since we recently added a section in our site for Windows 8, XDA member fiinix decided that it was probably a good idea to get things in this new section going. The best part is that he kicked things off with a registry hack, which likely made people who switched from WM to Android to remember the past and smile. This hack basically allows those who don’t enjoy the new Metro look in the OS to go back to a more familiar type of taskbar, like the one found in Windows 7. The tweak is relatively simple as only a couple of entries must be modified to get this going.
Please post your results if this worked out for you. Also, don’t forget to leave feedback for he dev.
Some of you may have seen it on youtube/google/tech-sites, but i just wanted to show you guys how to disable this new “Metro”, to be able to see the original “taskbar” as seen in Windows 7 (so you don’t need to put effort into finding how to disable it)
You can find more information in the original thread.
