Control which skin the Start8 start menu should use

This policy allows you to control which skin the Start8 start menu should use.

The default is designed to be similar to the Windows 8 OS theme and we recommend the use of this setting.

Server 2012 lacks support for the Rounded theme and Windows 7 theme and you should use the default theme instead.

If you do not configure this policy setting then it defaults to the default theme.

Supported on: At least Windows Vista
