Taskbar Classic Start Menu adds to the system notification area an icon. By clicking this icon, you can bring up a popup menu, which is similar to the Start Menu in Windows 2000 and Me. The program is designed for users who want to launch their programs using classic Start Menu, which in Windows 7 is missing.
This menu can automatically hide unused items (in the same manner as Windows 2000 and Me Start Menu did), show only the common or only the personal items, or they both together (separately or merged), or display a number of items with the user-specified second additional icon. It is possible to separately specify the size of icons, both for top-level items and sub-folders, to choose to display in multiple columns of a given height or one, with or without separators. Top-level menu shows a vertical banner with the name of the program, which can be replaced by any custom picture or removed at all.
Alternatively, this menu can be called from any place of the screen by pressing a button in the About box.
