Windows 10 Start Menu


Recommended Posts

  • 3 months later...

Can anyone from IOBIT confirm that a start menu for Windows 10 is being prepared ? I will not transfer to Windows 10 until I am assured there will be customization start menu programs form other vendors. When I had W 8 I used the iobit one and was happy with it. Then I went back to W 7 because I could not stand W 8. Please respond.

The addition of the possibility of switching between StartMenu8 and the genuine Windows 10 Start Menu has been a great enhancement. However, the genuine right-mouse-button menu shown when you click on the Start Menu can also be very useful, and now it is unaccessible when StartMenu8 is running. Instead, its own RMB menu appears.


I would really appreciate the possibility to switch between both rmb-menus without the need of exiting StartMenu8. Why is it so important to have an access to the genuine rmb menu? For example, it has an option to run a dos-like console (or PowerShell). It is very strange and unexpected, but when Cmd Console or PowerShell is run with a command under Windows 10, not each command is accessible! For example, bcdedit does not work. The only way to have the full access to all console commands is to run a console from rmb-menu when clicked on Start Menu button.


So, for now, installation of StartMenu8 blocks the access to opening of the console with all commands. If you need bcdedit, you must exit StartMenu8 which causes a returning of the genuine rmb menu. Only then you can run Cmd or PowerShell with the full set of commands, including bcdedit. So the possibility of choosing between the genuine rmb menu and the StartMenu8 rmb menu would be really nice.


Would it be possible to make a difference between clicking the StartMenu button and clicking the point in the very left button corner, like in Windows 8? It would be the best solution: clicking the Start Menu Button would cause the (LMB or RMB) IOBit menus to appear, and clicking at the corner would call the genuine menus (without the need of closing StartMenu8).
