Once it is installed and running, you will notice that the start menu orb has been placed in its original location. You can click on the icon to bring up the start menu. A side-effect is that ViStart maps the Windows key to the opening of the start menu, so that the operating system won’t switch into Metro anymore when you press that key. Metro UI is however not completely turned off, and you may be able to get back in via Alt-Tab or the Charms menu.
The icon overlaps with the first pinned taskbar icon on the other hand which you may not like. Here is how this is resolved:
-Create a new folder on the desktop or another location.
-Right-click the Windows Taskbar and select Toolbars > New Toolbar from the context menu. Select the newly created folder. You will notice that the new toolbar is placed on the right end of the taskbar.
-Right-click the taskbar again and select Lock The Taskbar. This unlocks the Windows Taskbar so that you can move the taskbar elements around.
-Now drag the new toolbar to the very left of the screen so that starts before the original toolbar with the pinned taskbar items.
-Right-click the taskbar again and uncheck Show Text and Show title in the context menu.
-Now move the original toolbar with a double-click on the separator near the start menu orb.
I might make a guide on OCN about this later, will be easier to have it in one place
