As well is known, beginning with Windows 7 there is no possible to set the classic Start Menu. Moreover, in Windows 8 and other newer systems there’s no Start Menu at all.
However, here is a simple way to get something quite similar:
- Right-click on the taskbar and choose “Toolbars/New Toolbar…” menu item.
- In “New Toolbar – Choose a folder” dialog, type or copy-paste from here:
- Push “Select Folder” button.
- Now have a look in the right side of the taskbar. You can see a little button labeled “Programs“. Just click in that button and voilà… you’ve got a classic Start Menu!
