Stardock announces Start10, a Windows 10 Start menu replacement

If you used an early version of Windows 8, you will know that it did not ship with a Start menu and because of this, many companies built products to fill this gap. Stardock, who built Start8, is back with a new version of their popular application for Windows 10 called Start10.

This time around, Stardock is making it easy to once again use a Windows 7 style Start menu with Windows 10. There are also modern interpretations of the Windows 7 menu too; we have attached a gallery at the bottom of this post so you can see what some of the options look like.

The app allows you to take full control of your desktop and will also allow you to remove the Start button on the desktop too. You can also select the icon size inside the menu, show or hide user pictures and a bunch of other options to customize the menu to your liking.

We know that not everyone loves the new Start menu and they still prefer the older Windows 7 layout. While you can remove all the tiles and create a similar style natively in Windows 10, Start10 gives you a closer look and feel to what Windows 7 offered with more options too.

The beta is only open to those with an existing/active object desktop subscription; a true open public beta has not been announced at this time. If you want to try out the beta now, you can learn more here.
