Power8 is a replacement Start menu tool that has a neat a compact look. While it has been primarily designed for disillusioned Windows 8 users, there is no reason that it cannot be used in other versions of the operating system as it has a number of interesting features.
Power8 is a little different from other Start menu replacements in that it does not try to completely replace the existing Start menu, nor does it skin it. This is essentially a standalone program which is not reliant on any system files and this brings the added advantage that changes to Windows will never mean that the program is rendered unusable.
- No system files patching
- No hooks over system objects
- No app-init DLLs
- No additional services, drivers, etc
- No trash in registry
- No installation - just unpack and launch
- Small, fast and powerful
Power8 was designed for Windows 8 (v.1.0.1 tested under RTM 9200) works under XP SP3 and Windows 7 SP1 as well.
