If you don't like your Windows' Start Menu, then change it. Despite its name, Start Menu 10 is a Start Menu substitute that you can use on Windows XP, Vista, 8, and 10. You could say it has an original look, a kind of mix of Windows XP's classic menu, and that of Windows 7.

New menu & and new button

Start Menu 10 replaces your Windows' Start Menu with an alternative version. With this menu you have quick access to your most used folders, recently used programs, recent documents, and of course, all your apps.

You can also use Start Menu 10 to change your Start button. It includes 17 designs, some of them really curious, like the bird and the pig from Angry Birds, Apple's logo, or Ubuntu's logo.

An additional interesting, and somewhat hidden function you find in Start Menu 10 is its shutdown timer. From the shutdown icon, not only you can sleep, shut down, restart, log off, etc., but also schedule your computer to do this after a set number of minutes.

Not that customizable

Start Menu 10 comes with several different styles, but they are not that different. Besides, you aren't able to customize the design too much by changing colors, or with similar options.

What you can do is resize windows, and even move them around. Ever dreamed with a Start Menu that was just a few inches away from the button? Probably not, but now you can get that.

A bit of a useless addition

Start Menu 10 is an acceptable Start Menu, although it doesn't manage to take away the impression that it's not really a start menu but rather a useless addition. Its appearance isn't quite capable of mimicking the system, and it ultimately gives the impression that it lacks a final polishing step.

Start Menu 10 is designed for all users

This latest development is the right solution for replacing the Windows 10 menu. Start Menu 10 uses unique interface solutions such as virtual groups and one-click launch. A smart list of popular applications and apps contains the most frequently and recently used applications. The interface is built on a decade of experience in developing alternative menus. Special features of cognitive perception and visual memory were taken into consideration.

What makes Start Menu 10 really special is the customizable list of folders and applications. You can add any of 25 system folders or any folder of your own to this list. This gives you easy access to anywhere on your computer directly from the menu.

Virtual groups and one-click launch provide even greater possibilities. Timer-based delayed shutdown and lots of other unique features.
