Windows 8 Start menu in Portrait mode Suggestion

    General discussion

  • I realized that the new Start menu in Windows 8 is not making use of the screen real estate available in Portrait Orientation.

    I would like to suggest that when in Portait mode, just change the orientation of the icons.

    So it will look more like windows Phone menu and you need to scroll up and down instead of left and right. See the picture below.

  • I like your suggestion!  Were you an attendee at the Build conference?  You have access to the connect site to add this as a suggestion if you do.

  • Thanks, jpsanders.

    Unfortunately I was not at the Build Conf and I do not have access to the connect site that you mentioned. Anyway, I just wish my suggestion to be heard by the right ppl. If you can help me put my suggestion in, that would be great as well. Cheers. :)
