Windows 7: Windows 7 & Classic start menu...

Windows 7 & Classic start menu...

Do you think Microsoft will give us the Classic Start Menu that has been absent in every beta so far?


I welcome change, no issue's there, but The start menu Classic look seems more solid, and easier to navigate (For me) then the "New Start Menu" that has been implemented since Windows XP.... I see how it has helped other users navigate, and that is great, but I do not want to adjust to something I dont feel comfortable with....it's like if America mandated all cars from now on be converted to Right side driving....

There is no direct way to change it in Win7. However you could try this program: Vista Start Menu – Convenient alternative to Start menu which will give you a variation of the classic menu. Ive tried it and it appears to work.

I would prefer the classic start menu.
Easier to locate things.

The should put the classic menu back on.

Get rid of the grouping of windows (what's with that anyways?).

Also, fading in my window without having to click it wtf? aero, ha!

Probably be wise to remove the pinning ability on the taskbar, ew.

Kill the search in the start too, who needs that.

Thanks for the link.

Unfortunately this is only a demo and for 7 days only.

This is exactly what I was looking for.

I actually like the new start menu...well, actually, I didn't really care either way. Still, is paying for it really worth it?

I wouldn't pay for it.

Sooner or later either : MS will re-enable it or someone else will come up with some freeware program.

Glad someone came up with it. Only wish they would have left search in. I'll wait for a freeware version too or...
