Are you missing the Classic Start Menu in Windows 7? If so, you are not alone. We have developed this Classic Start Menu for you, and now you can easily change the unusable menu of Windows 7 to the well known classic start menu with Aero skin. Actually, you can use other skins too, not just the Aero one. Yet, with Aero, you make the Classic Start Menu look like a real part of Windows 7.

Unique features:

  • One-click launch helps you run programs faster.
  • Use Classic Start menu as a starting point. You can add any folders to the menu, including special system folders, drives, or shortcuts, and get access to any point of your PC with few clicks from one single place.
  • Power button timers. Now you don't need to wait for when a long process will be completed. All you need is to turn on the timer and Classic Start Menu will turn off or reboot PC for you.
  • Aero Skin and others help you to change the look of the menu.
  • Quick un-install feature allows you to uninstall any program with a right-click, even if the program doesn't come with an uninstall shortcut in menu.

You will realize the power of the new Classic Start Menu as soon as you try it out.

Note that the most popular improvement idea will be rewarded with the lifetime license. Use Idea Informer widget to submit your feedback and do not forget to fill in your name and e-mail – otherwise the Developer will not be able to contact you in case you are the one to win!

Comments on Classic Start Menu Pro 3.8

FAIL. First, Returnil System Safe (which I got here at GOTD) flags Classic Start Menu as Malware - a few times. Second, after installation when I click on programs it opens Windows Explorer to the Programs directory. The same is true on most menu items. Finally, a system error popped up: "Access violation...".

On top of the other problems, the unistall locked up and I had to reboot -- then use ccleaner, etc. Running a Malwarebytes scan just in case.

Excellent Software except for one shortcoming. The genuine 'classic' start menu in Windows 98, Me, 2000, and XP allowed the user to add new folders in the main directory....which then allowed the user to group the shortcut icons of similiar applications together. For me, that was the greatest advantage of the genuine classic menu...and thus Classic Start Menu Pro's great shortcoming. Other than that issue, it is a wonderful app for those who miss the old Windows start menu (as I do).
