"Alternative Windows start menu XP/Vista/7"

Overview

Super Win Menu is a powerful application that revamps your Windows Start menu and makes it more convenient, powerful, and well-organized. This alternative Start menu makes it easy to access your favorite applications/documents within a customizable, centralized directory.

Installation

At a file size of about 6 MB, Super Win Menu downloads and installs in just a couple of minutes on any computer that has Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, or 7, with 10 MB of free disk space. Doesn't come bundled with other software.

Interface

This new Start button is located on the top-left of your desktop. Super Win Menu's interface is designed to be fully customizable through the use of templates and manual tweaking. You can adjust almost every aesthetic aspect of the Start menu, including text/background color, submenus, and various other formatting options. By giving the user the ability to personalize their Start menu with such depth, the software can effectively adapt to the visual layout of any desktop.

Pros

  • Provides quick and easy access to your most commonly and most recently used application/documents.

  • An instantly expandable, tab-based Start menu makes it easy to find and launch virtually any application immediately.

  • The content of your entire computer is conveniently displayed within your Start menu, thereby eliminating the need to navigate through many folders and subfolders

  • The Start Menu can be set to automatically expand when a mouse pointer hovers over the bottom left corner, or upon clicking the Start Menu button

  • Simplifies the process of finding and opening items via several automatically updated submenus, including Most Used Programs, Recent Open Documents, and Last Used Programs

  • Includes extensive help documentation, including a printable manual

Cons

  • The free version includes a pop-up dialog box with a 5-second countdown that appears quite often, however it is fully functional otherwise.
  • Although the interface can be adjusted and even contains themes such as XP, Vista or Win 7, the current Windows 7 style still looks more appealing

Alternatives

There are a number of alternative Windows Start Menus available for download, including but not limited to Launchy, Portable Start Menu, and Start Menu 7. However, Super Win Menu is the most customizable and includes several features not found in any other specialty Start menu applications.
