Has anyone else seen/noticed the Windows 8 "Start Button" right click menu?

I never heard about this and found it by accident the other day.

I'm sure most of you folks already know about it, but in case not. It's pretty schnazzy. tongue.gif

Just place your cursor in the bottom left and right click,

Pressing alt+x does the same thing. Most if us who use Win8 install classic shell to bypass metro and bring back the start button/menu.

I thought about it but I never really used the start menu to begin with. I would just Win+R or Win+Search anyway.
