Problem for me is it disabled itself the day after the install and wanted to default to the free non-pro version.
I tried to resolve by contacting the vendor. They said it was the result of changing equipment.
I didn't change equipment and am not happy that all they offered was a discounted price instead of the free program offered.

Love this menu,and have been using it forever,but unfortunately cannot continue with it because when I a set it to start with windows (10),it multiplied the start up time by a factor of 3-4.i.e.,from 40 seconds to 3 1/2 minutes. I have windows 10 fast startup option enabled.Start Menu x seems to nullify that feature somehow.

I have used this program off and on for a few years. Today I installed the pro version for free from GOTD. After it's activated a webpage comes up and says "Today only purchase the license for 70% off". I thought I would go ahead and finally buy it after using it free for so long. When I got to the cart it said Regularly $19.99 today for $9.99. Quick math will tell you that's only 50%. A little deceptive. No thanks, I'll try again another day. Thanks for the great program!

Dunno, but my option was for $6, which is very fair, however, it does default to a 2 license order. YOU have to remove one license.

I have a dual monitor setup on Win 10 Pro and on my 2nd monitor have the standard MS UI. On my main monitor I have the Start Menu 8 from IObit providing a Win 7 like experience. Apps open on the monitor that they were last on and can be dragged & re-sized at will. My workflow is much quicker and since I do tech support I am able to use the UI that my customer is using. I am also able to learn the MS UI as I wish.

I tried this product on a previous give a way and found the learning curve and features to be way more than I had time to learn. It probably would be perfect for others though and it did work well! I am really happy with what I have at present.

Thanks for the opportunity to give my incite and I did post this GOTD on FB.

First, thanks for the pro version, but I do have a problem. I was running the free version 5.5 and installed this version as administrator, after reboot it showed I was running ver 5.72 free. I did an uninstall, reboot and reinstalled as admin with the same results. The last try I made was to go to the administrator account where I did the uninstall, reboot and reinstall again. After reboot the admin account shows the pro version but the user account shows the free version. I would really like the pro version in the user account where I spent the most time.

Any thoughts?

I've been using Start10 (and previously Start8) from the good folks at Stardock.com, but after viewing the video on Start Menu X's home page, I may switch. This appears to be a very powerful program. I am impressed. It does allow for much more customization of the Start Menu that Classic Shell or Start 10 do.

Yes this programs has more settings but you relay need to setup the popup delay?
Most of the customers don't ask about this. Start Menu X has all that need for 90% of the customers.

I know this as religion and you don't hear me but you can just pass by if you prefer other program, it's easy. ;)

For people still using Windows 8.1, is there any advantage to using Start Menu X Pro over the free Classic Start Menu (from classic shell dot net)?

I assume you can't have both installed on the same PC and you would have to uninstall 1 of them, or can you keep both installed and enable/disable either one on-the-fly?

Jonathan, I use Classic Start Menu on my Win8.1 tablet and installed Start Menu X Pro a last time it was offered here. To avoid what I assumed would be a conflict between the 2 start menu programs, I simply turned off the autostart function of Start Menu X--no issue, then, in having both on my computer. And then, to check Start Menu X out, I simply closed the Classic Start Menu program and started up Start Menu X. In the end, I kept using Classic Start Menu--Start Menu X was just fine, but I didn't see any great benefit of it over Classic Start Menu--although it may have been a bit "sleeker" over Classic Start Menu at the time--and I appreciated the greater customizability I found with Classic Start Menu. Also, nice that Classic Start Menu simply can be freely reinstalled if that's ever needed.

I've used this from V4 on to this one, I bought a Pro key for the thing long ago, its good for W8 and 8.1 users, but not so much anymore on W10, the start menu on 10 is pretty customize-able now, and I've been slowly getting used to using it myself instead of startmenu. I still have startmenu installed and configured, but hardly open it now. But for those still getting used to the W10 menu, this is a good program to use as a go between.

I like this program, much better than the Classic Shell I have been using since I went 10. This is a keeper. Still loath 10 and would have 7 back if I could but I have only a 3 year old clone of the HDD with 7 and another HDD clone with 10. I am now running a 500GB SSD. Perhaps one day microsoft will sort out 10 and make it as good as 7 was/is.

With you there John. I tried 10 in October - it was a total dog's breakfast! I'm back with 8.1 and waiting until the last minute before I try it again. It's the upgrade that's the trouble. Perhaps it'd be better to do a clean install of 10 and then to see what works with it and what doesn't. Also thinking about dual booting with 8.1 and 10.

I can't seem to get this to install. I've unzipped the files into a new folder and even tried running it as administrator, but within seconds of clicking on the exe file, I get the "successfully activiated" box, but nothing has changed. I am still running the free version I had previously installed. Any ideas? This seems to be the case when I've tried to install several GOTD programs recently....nothing seems to happen.

I have around that many, but it doesn't cause me any problems. I've organized them into folders and sub-folders, I've prioritized the ones I use most and they also have desktop icons and the most-used of them all have taskbar buttons. That way of doing things works well for me. I emphasize "for me". If today's giveaway helps someone else, go for it, but for my situation and how I work, it's a solution in search of a problem that I don't have. Thank you anyway, though.

If you were used to Windows XP's start menu (as I was), and then start using Windows 7, you may find that Win 7's start menu leaves a lot to be desired (like I did). Start Menu X Pro, which I picked up through an earlier GotD offer, offers the same configuration as XP's start menu in that you can create categories, such as 'PDF Utilities,' and then add or move the relevant programs to that category; each program will then expand across the page as needed.

What do I do I do when I install a programme? I install it, same as anyone does. There's no "additional work" — unless you mean using a third-party programme to "tidy" things.

What do I do after uninstalling something and there are empty folder? I delete them, same as anyone would. Perhaps others "forget" them, but my memory and eyesight are fine, thanks.

These are not onerous tasks that I'm incapable or unwilling to do. A few seconds + a couple of clicks = no big deal, which is why I said: "If today's giveaway helps someone else, go for it, but for mysituation and how I work, it's a solution in search of a problem that I don't have."

The only draw back for me is in X's option there's no longer the transparent black but when 10 appears the back board is transparent so playing both menus is pretty neat.. Thanks GOTD and OrdinarySoft.. It's a keeper.

Hi

I am quite frustrated and have mentioned this before in direct communication with the Startmenu author.
I was a proud user of your excellent software until I originally upgraded from Win 8.1 to 10, where I continued using it for a while.

After that I got some unrelated problems & subsequently made a clean install of Windows 10. Around that time, when I tried to re-install a free version from the website, somehow, it could not run. If you tried to start it manually, nothing happened. In the task manager, it appears briefly & then disappears & is no longer under processes.

I have had to do a Windows 10 re-installation, 2 or so other times again .... I had the same issue, with latest availble version on the site, both free & pro trial version.

I forgot about it.

Then today, once I saw the offer, I pounced on it, but it has led to the same disappointing results. I have 2 accounts on this laptop with admin. rights, one of which I never use. I thought I could try it on the latter, still same result.

Quite confounded by what keeps it from running on this laptop, when I have it functioning on another PC & on one of a friend, both with Win 10 & had it functioning before on this laptop as mentioned.

Is there any known issue, is there any way one can troubleshoot to see what stops it on this particular machine?

Regards

For a different piece of software, I had this issue and discovered it was the installer not recognizing the Symbolic Linker or Junction Point location that I had downloaded the file to. Enough jargon, just right click the file and choose "Open file location" and install from that location if it navigated there. Also try installing from USB thumb drive too. Good luck.

Hi
Thank you for your suggestions.
I have tried several things including running installation as administrator, running the compatibility trouble shooter which suggested Windows 7 mode, installing from USB drive ..., though instead of "right click the file and choose => 'Open file location'" ... I only have "Open", ... I get the same result: not even the pre-selected "Launch" after installation leads to the desired result. You see it briefly appear in the task manager under processes after which it disappears. Same after a manual start.
All this was never necessary on this Samsung laptop before during the Win 8.1 & initial Win 10 days after upgrade! The installation & functioning was as straightforward as that of ALL other programs.
It also works fine as said on 2 separate gadgets where i installed the free version a couple of months ago, upgraded from Win 7 & Win 8.1 respectively. ... and no one else is complaining here ... :(
After 3 or so subsequent clean Win 10 installations, ... no success, neither with the free/trial pro version from their site & today's giveaway.
Never had such an issue before.
....

Well ... I probably have to admit defeat, unless the cause can be identified.

Regards

Thank you for you response.
Yes, I remember you asking for more information, but at the time I had more or less given up & then got busy with other things & forgot.

The problem seems to be identified as I indeed have ==>> Pinnacle Studio 18 Ultimate ....

If I remember well, this was part of the last response from you:

... c:\program files\start menu X\
and launch the startmenux.exe

after this please click Options and check the first option -
start with Windows

If you get any error please make screenshot and send it to me.


The problem, though is if I go to the location & try to manually start the program, as mentioned .... nothing visible happens, nothing of the Startmenu interface gets launched, ... so there is no way to get to those options, much less a screenshot!

The Startup status of Startmenu X in task manager shows is "enabled", which I guess means the program starts with Windows ...

Could there be a solution for Pinnacle studio users?

Kind regards & thank u

I must add I had the same Pinnacle Studio under Win 8.1 & after upgrading to Win 10.
The conflict with it must be under Win 10, clean install ... I guess.

Please send to supportbox at orinarysoft.com the download link to Pinacle studio that you have. Since the Pinacle don't provide the public link for download and I need the same file that you have.
btw. Hacked version of Pinacle works very well with Start Menu X since problem related to paranoid protection of Pinacle Studio. So I need the original file from Pinacle.

Could it be a solution to install them at each their drive? Maybe silly suggestion, but many users installs recovery programs at another drive. That folder might be usefull - especially to avoid huge installations at the system drive.

Even, Win 10, actually have a nice and easy customable start menu, I still like Start Menu X - even as my first choice. No, I have no share's in the program. As far as I recall, the developer, uses his time to design Start Menus......and he's pretty good at it. Thanks for the upgrade. In fact I had the freeware version installed. Though, be aware, Start Menu X uses quite some resourses - just in case, the pc isn't a power machine.

Happy weekend and thanks to, Ordinairy Soft, and the team behind GAOTD from Denmark.

I've been using Start Menu x (5.70 currently) for a number of years and I like it. My only gripe is that sometimes I have to click on the start icon (win 7 64) two or three times before the menu will appear. Other than that it's been very good.

Their website didn't mention any version differences that I could see, so I wonder if there are any. I think the later versions of windows have more interesting start menus (maybe?), but this definitely is an improvement for windows 7!

I use to start it from tray - ot the keyboard. Just as easy, when you get used to :-)
