The installation process is a breeze, as it does not offer to download any third-party products and it takes only a few moments to complete. The interface you are greeted by presents an intuitive and very familiar layout. As a result, it becomes pretty clear that all types of users, including those less experienced with the IT world, can easily work with it.

Settings you can configure

As the actual classic Start menu, this program can automatically hide unused items, while it also lets you view a list of all recently used files and favorites. A pretty long list of settings can be customized, so that all individuals can set it up according to their specifications.

To be more exact, you can choose which mouse button to use in order to launch the menu (left, middle, right), adjust the menu captions length limit and column size, merge personal and common programs and change icon size.

It is also possible to display a picture in the on the left of the menu from the hard drive using a BMP picture format, or one of the incorporated items, show a splash screen when the utility starts, enable sound in particular circumstances and import it using a WAV extension.


To wrap it up, Taskbar Classic Start Menu is a pretty efficient piece of software, dedicated to all types of users who have a fondness for the classic Start menu. The response time is good, the system’s performance is not burdened and our tests did not register any errors, hangs or freezes.
