There is no start menu or start button in 2012. You can get to the start screen by moving the mouse to the top right corner of the screen and then hitting the start charm. 2012 R2 reintroduced a start button. There is still no start menu in 2012 R2, but the start button makes getting to the start screen a tad easier.
