    Win10 Start Menu cascading menus


    Is it possible to have the cascading menus with Win 10 as were in Win7?

    You put your mouse over a folder and it opens up, I can't find out how to do this with 10.


    Many thanks

    OK Thanks


    Worth a try

    I loved this feature, like so many other things in Win7 that Windows got rid of for no practical reason.

    You could activate the taskbars built in Desktop Toolbar and get the same effect.

    The taskbar toolbar can't combine the two programs folder - there are two - one for All Users and one per user account where the Start menu shortcuts go.

    Are you talking about shell:appsfolder(use run dialog)
    You can create a toolbar for that too.
    And get all this in a cascading menu:

    Addition to the above, you can copy all onto the desktop, which creates shortcuts only. Then delete the shortcuts you don't need. Place the rest in a folder on the desktop and the desktop toolbar will cascade them out. Easy peasy!

    Thanks for the info.

    I do use the Toolbar to access Documents, but it was so much easier with Win7 using the start menu.

    I use Classic Shell, which is very good, but then you lose the WIn10 Start menu options.


    Thanks anyway
