Vista Start Menu

  • Generic Company Place Holder Vista Start Menu

The Windows Start menu is a mildly useful tool for running programs and accomplishing other tasks. But what if you want something more than merely a mildly useful tool? Then get this program, which despite its name works with both Vista and XP. It puts all of your programs and important folders within easy reach, so that you can launch them quickly. It also gives you fast access to turning off, rebooting, logging off, and switching users.

It's also customizable so that you can change the size of the menu, for example, as well as decide which power management buttons to display (Switch, Logout, Stand By, Reboot, Hibernate, and Turn Off). You can also have the power management buttons either at the top or bottom of the screen.
