  • This is a tool, that might be useful for those who have been desperately holding on to Windows XP, as its default behaviour is to make the start menus as similar to XP as possible. Unfortunately, the only appealing function is has to offer, displaying a shared folder icon overlay, doesn't appear to be working. If you're one of those who dread changing from XP to Windows 7, then perhaps this can be part of the sollution to having 7 look and feel like XP, but personally, I didn't get any use out of it.

  • Classic start menu? You have to be kidding me, there is nothing good about that old piece of junk, you people should evolve.

  • old menu is wrong way to use os
