Start Menu XP

The program makes the list of programs "drop out" just like it did in Windows XP. You can also organize programs in "virtual groups". Groups can be "folded" to make finding and launching programs easier.

That should make our work easier when being cooperated with Grouping feature.

Make it skinnable.

One shortcoming that I have noticed is that there is no way to change how the groups and programs are displayed.

Couldn't work out how to arrange programmes into groups.

Couldn't work out how to arrange programmes into groups. It is not intuitive and not easy-to-use

click on the folder to open it

I much prefer to be able to click on the folder to open it, instead of having to hover my mouse over the folder to get to the shortcuts.

Allow drag and drop to desktop or other toolbar.

Since this menu doesn't update the list of recently used programs it would be nice to be able to drag a shortcut to the desktop or a toolbar for programs used frequently. There is no way of doing this unless you quit the program first.

increasing the character width of menu columns

Is there a way of increasing the character width of menu columns. When you open a folder it would be nice to see the full program name, it appears if the program name is bigger than the column width you don’t see the full name. This is a problem...

I just installed it on my windows 7 and let's see

Upgraded to Start Menu 7 Pro

I have just upgraded from the original Start Menu 7 and I cannot see in real benefits in the PRO version. I think the PRO version is just a complicated way of organising the menu. In the older free version I could create a folder within the menu...

Remember how to drag & drop - and you will have no problem sorting your folders - folders are just a 'right' click away. Remember XP and how to use it - thanx - it looks interesting - I'll work with it for a while.

Power Button action:

Currently when you click Start, the Power Button action always defaults to "Shut down". In the original Windows7 properties, you can change it to Switch user, Log off, Lock, Restart, Sleep.

This is actually a pretty good idea - but it seems to be missing a few features -

1. Use the current Vista / 7 fonts / theme layout 2. Allow drag and drop reorganisation 3. Allow deletion of entries from the start menu using right click (context menu) Actually, having used Start Menu XP Pro for a few minutes, points 2 and...

Use the program on XP (LOL)

It's funny to see a program that attempts to move backward in OS', even for a feature like the start menu. Could we have something from 9x please.

Program works under XP. So you may use Virtual groups and other advantages.
