Giveaway of the Day - Tidy Start Menu 3.4

January 24, 2011
This giveaway is not available any more.

Are you tired of searching for programs in a long “Start Menu” list? If so, this program is for you. It allows you to arrange all the shortcuts in the Start Menu.

Your Start Menu looks neat, and you can easily and quickly find any program you want. For example, you can create a special “Games” category, and when opening the Start Menu you will see a “Games” section (instead of a list of the games) in which you will find the game you need.

  1. The Good
    * Straightforward and easy to use.
    * Allows users to work in two modes – “Simple” and “Explorer”.
    * Provides users with a handful of categories to use to reorganize the start menu, and gives users the ability to create their own.
    * Comes with a handful of supplementary features: adding icons to start menu folders, adding uninstall quick-links to right-click context menus, and searching for and removing broken shortcuts.
    * Can backup/restore the start menu and import/export the start menu as XML files.
    * Gives users the ability to organize the start menu of all Windows’ users’ accounts.

    The Bad
    * There is no way to “undo” the deletion of a category.
    * All the entries placed in a category are deleted upon the deletion of a category – no way to automatically remove the entries after deletion so they can be placed in another category.
    * There is no way to “undo” the deletion of a start menu entry under “Explorer Mode”.
    * No option in “Explorer Mode” to move start menu entries instead of copying them.
    * “Icon Wizard” works but displays errors.

  2. This can all be done by browsing to “C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs” and it won’t cost you 24.99 nor will it add one more useless program to your start menu. (view hidden files and folders must be selected to view the AppData folder)

    This is for windows 7, I imagine vista will be the same and I can’t remember how to do it in XP but it is do able.

  3. Every version of Windows has this capability anyway?

    My start menu has six categories, (Utilities, Graphics, Reference, Games, etc.), and it is a simple matter to organise all program shortcuts to your liking?

    Half the trouble is that installation programs make a new menu folder by default. Most of the examples that this program addresses wouldn’t exist if people just unticked a box, or pointed to a different location when installing programs.

    Sorry – thumbs down for me – a complete waste of space. Such programs have been offered before here on GOTD and received similar comments, although mine have been moderated, so clearly the team are not listening by giving us another one!
