Stardock, a company most of us are familiar with since a lot of us used their Start8 product in Windows 8 to bring us the Windows 7 start menu to the OS which didn’t really even have a start menu to begin with. Now the company has brought their Start10 product for Windows 10 out of beta and into a production release.
Like many other Windows users, we are very pleased to see that Microsoft brought back the start menu in all of its former glory but we are sadden that they still left it very uncustomizable to the end-user. With Start10 from Stardock you can take your Windows 10 back into the past and make it appear just like Windows 7’s start menu.
Start10 also maintains the familiar “folders” metaphor. Right now in the Windows start menu everything is listed in alphabetic order, which can make the start menu quite long, whereas in previous versions of Windows applications like Word, Excel and the other Office applications were found in the “Microsoft Office” folder on the start menu.
In Windows 10 the search bar has been taken out of the start menu and placed on the task bar. Start10 allows you to have the search functionality back in your start menu.
Priced at only $4.99, the Start10 product is available now via Stardock.com
