Start Screen Button Start Screen Button is so simple but so helpful, especially if you use RDP connections to your Windows 8 or Server 2012 systems and have to place your mouse perfectly in the RDP window to get the Start screen back. This tool places a little Start tile on your taskbar; just click it to get back to the Start screen. Download the tool, right-click, choose Pin to Taskbar, and you’re set. That’s all it does, and it is already saving me time with Server 2012 systems I have to configure with Exchange 2013. With Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 R2, this may not be needed, but for those of us running Server 2012 already, it’s an easy fix.
