Description from the Publisher

Start Menu X is a replacement of the system menu for professionals. Compatible with Windows 8.1 Power users know how inconvenient and time-consuming it is to launch programs from the system menu.


Virtual Groups

If you have a long list of programs, it is very convenient to divide them by type. For example, Games can go in the Games folder and Office applications in the Office folder.

Old programs, such as Tidy Start Menu created folders on the drive and placed programs there. However, this led to some problems. For example, you have installed Microsoft Office and by using Tidy Start Menu placed this program in the Office folder. You will then have

Start Menu\Office\Microsoft Office,
but if a new version is installed it will be in the root menu and you will have two folders,
Start Menu\Office\Microsoft Office
Start Menu\Microsoft Office

or if you remove Microsoft Office, you will have trash,
Start Menu\Office\Microsoft Office
therefore, this old approach required constant cleaning and effort!

New Generation

The new program Start Menu X completely replaces the menu, which makes it possible to create Virtual Groups.
In other words, the location of the shortcuts does not change and Start Menu X notes which group the program belongs to in its database. To edit the group, just run Group Manager by right clicking and selecting Manage Groups, or by starting it from the Start Menu X folder like an other program.

In the free version you can only place programs into existing categories. In the PRO version you can edit groups as you wish.

Converting from old programs

If you created a real folder group in Tidy Start Menu or other program, you can easily convert it into a virtual one. Just start Group Manager and from the program list drag the folder with the old group to the button Add Group. Start Menu X creates the virtual group itself and moves the programs to it.

Flexible configuration

Customize the menu to your taste! Change the structure and add tabs.

Single-click launch

The PRO version allows you to assign a primary program to any folder and start it simply by clicking this folder.
