Windows 7 and the classic start menu

June 12th, 2009 | Tags:

Like many people one of the first things I do after installing Windows is “enable classic start menu” (in fairness I probably do this after de-selecting “hide extensions for known file types). In 7 this option has been removed *sniff sniff*, whilst I could take the hint and move on I am not going without a fight!

There are a number of “fudges” on the web, here, here and here. The nicest version I have come across is here (but this does not come cheap at £16.95). Maybe I will join the masses, the ribbon bar did pay off….eventually!
