I occasionally use the "Start Menu Search
I have pinned to the "Taskbar
- Computer Management.
- Control Panel (with pinned Jump List entries).
- Windows Explorer (with pinned Jump List entries).
- My Firefox Profile Selection batch file.
I have pinned to the "Start Menu
- 2 System Cleaners.
- Firefox (standard shortcut).
- Command Prompt.
- Macrium Reflect Free.
- Run VMware Workstation and Services batch file.
- 2 media players (e.g. 1 for music & 1 for video).
The rest of my programs are in "All Programs
" (obviously) including ones that don't install and therefore don't create "Start Menu
" shortcuts (which I create myself).
My "All Programs
" menu has been categorised to reduce clutter (see animated gif below).
The "Start Menu
" is of more use to me, than the Windows 8 Metro screen.
