    Best Start Menus for Windows 10


    After the anniversary update, the start menu became crap. What are some good alternative start menu programs for windows 10, preferably one that looks similar to windows 10's but allows pinning files to the start menu.

    See e.g.

    Windows 10 Start menus: Start10 vs. Classic Shell | InfoWorld

    Classic Shell (free) lets you do anything you want including launching universal apps, except it can't be used to show tiles. Highly reliable and flexible- allows adding file and folder shortcuts.

    I really like the tiles feature of default Windows 10 start menu. I wish some third party program allowed me to pin files as tiles on the Windows 10 start menu.

    Hi, wondering if you looked at any.. Start10 e.g.:
    Start10: Software from Stardock Corporation
    Start10: Software from Stardock Corporation

    I've no idea what it's like personally so can't recommend.. you could try it and let us know..

    They have "three" styles in Start10 (actually just two). The first two works but the third one just disables the program so that default Windows 10 start menu appears.

    I found an easy way to pin files as tiles. You just have to use a registry file. Just use the downloadable registry file from the following site.
