What is the Quick Starter bar for Samsung PC's?
Samsung returns the classic Start menu to Windows 8 with their free application known as "Quick Starter app" (previously called S Launcher). It was primarily due to ship with the new Windows 8 devices, but instead Samsung made it available as a free download program when Samsung machines hits the market.
Perhaps knowing that not everyone loves a big change in the user interface and knowing that it might actually put some consumers off buying the Windows 8 equipment, Samsung offered users different options between the old and new. It's going to be available to download from the S Manager room - a portal to the latest drivers and software within Samsung's Glass Windows 8 machines.
Included inside S Manager is Samsung's Quick Nice feature, which adds a toolbar and start button to this Windows 8 program. This provides users with a choice of interface and supplies a familiar navigation plan.
Yes. It basically rewired and revolutionized the Start button that most users has familiarized with. If you have never used a Windows 8 system before, then you're in for a surprise as you won't be seeing the familiar Start button icon on the lower-left side of your screen, instead you will see floating tiles of programs and applications rather than icons.
No, the quick starter is in fact not a replacement for the push to start button. The push to start button is located inside of the vehicle and the quick starter button is located on your key remote to start the vehicle before you enter.
