Start Menu X Editor's Review

With the latest release of Windows 8, it’s time to kiss goodbye to the Windows start menu which has been with Windows ever since Windows 95. It’s been changing since Windows XP, however has totally disappeared in Windows 8. Conveniently, Start Menu X may be able to help you if you’re lost and in desperation without your trusty start menu, and works perfectly alongside the Metro Start Menu in Windows 8, as an additional menu, or a replacement for the current Windows 7 start menu if you’re looking for one with a little bit more to it and that is a little more customizable!

Start Menu X can run alongside the current Windows start menu if you want it to (Windows 7 or earlier). It’s easily accessed by clicking the Start Menu X icon from the system tray, and the menu will launch just as expected. If you like, the Start Menu X logo can sit on top of the Windows start menu icon, therefore opening Start Menu X would work in the exact way as expected (clicking the bottom left hand corner of the screen), and would open instead of the normal Windows Start Menu if you want to totally replace it. The Windows flag key on your keyboard can launch Start Menu X, therefore it becomes totally integrated into your system.

Start Menu X is a lot more customizable than the normal Windows Start Menu. You can change its theme and colours, scale, and the look of the Start Menu X button if you choose to have one.  Just like the Windows Start Menu, Start Menu X is drag and drop enabled, so you can easily and simply drag and drop your favourite applications to the left hand side of the menu for easy assessing, and move them around into your preferred order.

For users who miss the old style Windows Start Menu, Start Menu X takes on the ‘branching’ out menus effect, instead of each new submenu sitting on top of the last. It also incorporates the search box as seen in the standard Windows Start Menu in Vista and 7, for quick typing in of key words to track down the application or file you want to open.

If you have a developed a strong hatred for Metro, or just can’t bear the thought of switching to it quite yet, Start Menu X is definitely something worth looking at. To make it even better, it’s a free application and won’t cost you a penny to try or keep. It’s a great addition to Windows 8, and even more features can be unlocked if you choose to purchase the full version of the software, even though the free version seems perfectly adequate and doesn’t nag you to upgrade. Overall, I’d give it a 3.8/5.
