Start Menu for Pokki
Start Menu for Pokki is a lightweight tool that allows you to access and install multiple applications on your computer. As the name suggests, the program has an interface that resembles the classic Start Menu and can even replace this Windows feature.
The main goal of the program is to provide access to the Pokki application store in order to easily install the desired tools. By default, the PC App Store is the only shortcut from the menu which can be later personalized with the tools that you frequently use.
If you are using Windows 8 and miss the Start Menu, this program can provide you with similar features. You can search through the installed programs and pin your favorite ones to the menu in order to launch them with two clicks.
Besides searching your PC for programs and documents, the Pokki menu provides you with relevant links that can be launched in the default Internet browser. All the search results can be pinned to the menu and organized by using drag and drop.
By using the button context menu you can disable the menu or access the settings window. Here, you can enable the sidebar which includes links to the user’s folders or the Control Panel.
The Windows 8 users who find it difficult to shutdown or restart the computer can easily access these commands from the main menu. Moreover, you can browse the list with all the installed apps and administrative tools.
Another useful feature is the notification support which allows the installed programs to provide you with updates. If you are using an email client or the Facebook app, this function allows you to stay in touch with the latest news.
Whether you want to bring back the Start Menu functionality to Windows 8 or use the apps from the Pokki store, Start Menu for Pokki is a great addition to your desktop tools.
