ViStart screenshotWindows Start Menu is used to rapidly access the applications installed on the PC, files and system settings. Usually, it is the first place the user looks into after starting up the computer. It includes a collection of effective shortcuts such as the Internet browser, an email client, the applications and folders that are regularly used and even the most current documents we opened.

The program really replaces the start menu with a completely customizable resolution that has the same feel and look of any of the mentioned OSes. The shape and buttons arrangement are related and the program offers even the transparency and blur options.

The program’s skin manager comes with 3 pre-installed skins and 4 start orb buttons (logos that describe Firefox, Apple, Ubuntu and the standard Windows Flag). The start orbs can be linked with any of the skins, so allowing you to mix appearances and customize the menu to the maximum.


  • Easy to configure and navigate the settings menu.
  • Skinnable (Orb and Menu).


  • Installation can be confusing.
