Windows Server 2012 R2: Comeback of the Start button

Hi everyone,

In the last few months, we heard a lot of stories about the Start button. Will this button be back? Or not? That was a big question.
The answer is yes, the start button is back, but not the old start menu.

On the left, you could see the new start button

A left click on it, you are redirected you to the Start menu.

A right click on the new start button opens the menu that we had before by doing a right click in the left corner.


Now, it’s really easier to get access to that menu.


New feature, you could now shutdown/Restart the server directly from this menu.
