Windows 8…What No Start Menu??

At first glance most long time windows users will ooh and aah at the new metro interface in Windows 8. But when those same long time Windows users sit down and start using Windows 8, you suddenly feel really stupid. Like what happened to my Start menu? How can I get to a command prompt if I need to? How do I display printers or the control panel? All excellent questions for the Windows 8 newbie.
