The HP Quick Start Application (Windows 8)

This document applies to HP computers with Windows 8 manufactured in 2013.
HP Quick Start is a Windows 8 software application that provides a familiar way to open apps from the Windows desktop.
In Windows 8, the Start button and Start menu from previous versions of Windows have been replaced with the Start screen. As an alternative to using the new Windows 8 Start screen, HP Quick Start organizes your apps in a format that resembles the traditional Windows Start menu.
This document guides you through using the HP Quick Start app.
Using HP Quick Start
The HP Quick Start application can be opened from the tile on the Start screen, or from the Windows desktop icon or taskbar icon. To open Quick Start, click the tile or the taskbar icon, or double-click the Desktop icon.
