Software Product Description

Many applications that replace the Metro Start Screen found in Windows 8/10 bring the Classic Start Menu found in Windows 7. However, there are many people who love Windows XP even though Microsoft has stopped supporting it. Can you upgrade to Windows 8 but still retain the Start Menu you grew to love in Windows XP? Yes, you can.

Spencer allows you to get the Classic Windows XP Start Menu without replacing your Windows 8/10 Start button. Once you have downloaded the small application in ZIP archive, you will need to extract it to your selected directory, right-click it and then select 'Pin to Taskbar'. Alternatively, you can create a keyboard shortcut that allows you to open the Classic Start Menu. You can do this in the icon properties.

Whichever method you use, you will easily access all Start Menu entries, including having direct access to the Run dialog, Administrator command line and the Control Panel.

Pros: It runs

Cons: No configuration options (that I can find), no documentation.

Other Thoughts: The first time I ran the program, it displayed my multiple columns of Start Menu items in a tiled format, though labels were only visible on the first column. However, once I clicked on something, the other columns vanished, and I had to scroll the menu up and down using the little scrolling arrows. I *hate* that, it's what I had about Win7/8 start menus.

Anyway, just skip this and use Classic Start Menu instead.
