    Start10 beta announced (must have active ObjectDock sub)


    If you used an early version of Windows 8, you will know that it did not ship with a Start menu and because of this, many companies built products to fill this gap. Startdock, who built Start8, is back with a new version of their popular application for Windows 10 called Start10.

    The app allows you to take full control of your desktop and will also allow you to remove the Start button on the desktop too. You can also select the icon size inside the menu, show or hide user pictures and a bunch of other options to customize the menu to your liking.

    The beta is only open to those with an existing/active object desktop subscription; a true open public beta has not been announced at this time.

    I may give it a try if they put out a public beta. I really liked Start8.

    Yep, saw that after I posted. Oops.

    I like the native 10 menu, but if it's a free upgrade from Start8 (doubt it), then I'll likely give it a try, just to run through the options.

    I'll stick with Start8 as it mimics the Windows 7 Start Menu that I like (XP was even better) & I can switch between that & the Windows 8 Start Screen.
