I don't even like the classic start menu but I thought I would post this because I always see so many people here saying how they would love to be able to use the classic start menu in Windows 7 :)

Yeah, I wasn't taking a shot at you with my post, it was just a general statement.

Yeah, stupid people. Having their own opinions, what's wrong with them. They should like what they're told to like.

And since when have screenshots in BMP format been a good idea? Oh that's right, NEVER! I'll give this a miss thanks.

Oh and if you want to use a system that looks and feels like 2000/XP, then use 2000/XP. Simples.

Paying £17 for a classic start menu though? Now that's just not on.

Why on Earth would anyone purchase a program to re-enable a replica of the classic Start menu? That's just wrong.

Strange... the fan boys are all declaring anyone who wants to continue using the classic menu is a fool and yet so many of us would still like it there. Its almost as if we don't care what the fan boys think and just want something that works for us. :blink:

I turned the downloads folder into a junction point to the start menu, so I can do this :whistle:

It's 2009. If you still want the classic Start menu, then stick with XP or Vista.

Also, looking at the site:

The innovative, high-tech version of Windows Start menu introduced in Windows 7 is not necessarily welcome by experienced users of previous Windows editions. The lack of choice resulting from Microsoft's removal of classic Start menu from Windows 7 leaves many computer users frustrated. Seven Classic Start enables the familiar look and feel of the classic Start menu found in Windows XP and Vista for users of Windows 7.

You're obviously not very "experienced" if you aren't capable of doing things in a new (and even better) way. I don't know why people even bother with newer OS if all they want to do is use their old computing habits from 15-20 years ago.

I think the new start menu isn't so bad. But I also want to have back the good old classic menu.

But you can emulate the classic start menu in Windows 7.
So you have the features of the new menu AND the classic start menu side by side.

  • Features of the new menu:
  • recent opened programs
  • pinned programs
  • jumplists
  • special links (right area of start menu)
  • search bar
    Bad in new menu:
  • All programs: louvre opened menu
  • Reduced space for "All programs" menu by start menu, often scrolling is needed
  • Search bar without "history"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • Features of classic menu:
  • Laterally opened menu without mouse click
  • Menus uses full screen height
    Bad in classic menu:
  • No recent opened programs
  • No jumplist
  • No search bar

What defines a "better way"?

If I can accomplish tasks via the command line much faster than you can do them via a GUI (and often things you CAN'T do without having a specialized tool for it), does that mean your "new" way is improved and better just because it's "easier" or "flashier"?

If people are content using the classic start menu, why deprive them something that has worked for them for so long? Just implement it alongside the new way of doing things and you'll please both sides of the fence.
